Neighbor reacts after woman is robbed, stabbed on Telfair St.

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County deputies are still looking for the suspect they say is responsible for robbing and stabbing a woman on Telfair St. Friday afternoon.

Venisha Brown was slashed in the arms and robbed in a dispute with an acquaintance known only as "David" over gas money.

Doris Wilder lives on  Telfair St. with her grandchildren and she says even after crime has happened in her neighborhood, she isn't worried about her or her family's safety.

"We've had a little bit of incidents on Telfair St., but it's not to the point that we can't come outside our door or nothing like that, or that we scared to live here. So I'm not scared to live here," she says.

Wilder and her family live across the street from the house where the incident took place yesterday, and she says the community is on the lookout for the "David".

"We do look out for each other because if we see strange people in the neighborhood, we do look around and make sure that we know everybody's just about coming into our neighborhood," Wilder says. 

She also says there's been more police patrolling the area to help with the community watch program, she and feels this will help keep residents at ease.

"Our neighborhood, I feel like, is pretty good. We continue to do what we doing to make a safe neighborhood for everybody. You know, we just have to stay together and do what we've been doing," says Wilder.

She has one main message for people: Telfair St. is not a dangerous place.

"I feel very safe. I've been here for two years, I've lived down here by myself and I'm safe," she says.

"David" is described as:
Approximately 40 yoa
601/180
Dark complexion
Bald or shaved head
No facial hair
Tan shirt / Tan shorts

David fled the scene in an older green Ford extended cab pickup truck with a possible SC license plate and tinted windows. A picture of the truck can be seen to the right.

Anyone with information on this case should contact RCSO CID at 706-821-1020 or Dispatch at 706-821-1080.
