On Thursday at 12:26 p.m., a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to 1007 North Point Drive, Acworth, in reference to a robbery report. The deputy met with the victim known as “Johnboy.” According to the incident report, he told the deputy he was standing in his neighbor’s yard when a dark red Ford pickup truck with a lifted suspension pulled into the turn-around. A female got out and started yelling at Johnboy, accusing him of stealing her gun.

Johnboy allegedly walked over to the truck to talk to the female when she pulled out a knife and yelled, “I will [explicit] cut you.” The victim said she then pulled out a .380 revolver-type gun and said she would shoot him if he did not give her gun back.

Allegedly, Johnboy took the gun, which he said he inherited from his father, out of his backpack and gave it to the female so that she would leave. She got in her truck and left.

After the deputy arrived, a phone call for Johnboy came from the victim. She asked Johnboy not to get her in trouble with the cops.

The deputy was able to locate the female by the truck description and license plate number. She stated that she had a friend, that she knew only as Johnny, take her to Collins’s Corner for a pack of cigarettes 30 minutes before the deputy had arrived and had not been anywhere since.

The gun was not found.
