The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's office.
Robbed at knife point
A Hephzibah man told officers a man robbed him of clothes at knife point over the weekend.
Jessie Daniel Reid, 21, said a black male broke into an apartment on 300 block of Applecross Drive and woke him up. Reid said he awoke to find the man pointing a knife at him and demanding clothes.
The report states Reid was asked to help gather various items of clothes and put them in a hamper. The suspect then asked Reid to help carry the clothes and a VCR to a car nearby.
The report shows $1,000 worth of clothes was taken and that an investigator was called to the scene.
Columbia County investigators are trying to determine whether a Grovetown fire was caused by arson.
The report shows a deputy responded to call just after midnight on Aug. 10 about a possible fire. When the officer arrived, he saw the residence on the 300 block of Laurie Drive has been overtaken by flames.
The Appling Fire Department extinguished the fire but officers were told by witnesses that the sound of fireworks were heard just before the fire broke out. An investigator was called to scene. The report shows nobody was home at the time of the fire.
Cow shot in the eye

Hubert McCoy, 71, said he found the cow after hearing several gunshots sometime between 5 and 5:30 p.m. on Aug. 8.
McCoy told officers the shots appeared to have come from Parham Road, which backs up to his property.
