Teen, 17, Arrested in Robbery Outside Augusta Church


2An Augusta teenager was arrested Wednesday night in the attempted robbery of an elderly man outside a church on Labor Day, authorities said.

The public helped identify 17-year-old Dwayne Holden as the suspect seen in the Monday morning video. The disturbing video was broadcast to the public for two days, showing the young robber waving the gun while the 73-year-old victim obeyed every command.

1The teen got away with nothing since the man didn’t have any cash. The victim said he was watching the sunrise as his wife prayed inside Adoration Chapel at 1210 Monte Sano Avenue.

Holden was featured just a few weeks ago in The Jail Report after his arrest Aug. 11 for shoplifting. The mugshot above is from that arrest.

The teen remains in the Richmond County Jail right now under no bond for criminal attempted felony.

  1. My original comment was deleted because it contained the very same word that is plastered across every poster and website when crime is committed and justice served..rhymes with Crack….funny how the editors of this Web Trash Can censors free speech – about the very crime reporting they exploit for monetary gain.

  2. If things were to go badly wrong economically in America and food and gas were in short supply and gubmint welfare checks stopped arriving in the mail, the scene depicted in the above photo would be repeated all over our urban centers. It would be like Mad Max meets Escape from New York. Dwayne is the poster child for a huge population cohort who think of nothing and nobody but themselves and who care nothing for the needs of others.

    These are the sort of people who will kill you for a tank of gas or a bag of potato chips. This country is in serious, serious trouble.

    Where yo’ daddy at, Dwayne? He teach you right from wrong?

  3. seems to me if this jerk can get up at the crack of dawn to rob some elderly senior citizen then he can get the hell up and go to a job (i know ,dirty word to him ) or a least look for one. No doubt he has a criminal record with at least one felony charge there fore his reason for the life of crime is no one will hire him . He is a danger to society there fore lock him up for a long as the law will allow for this crime, then continue this process for every other jackass that commits these types of brutal crimes , might not change much but at least it might slow it down some !
