Glynn woman robbed outside grocery store

Glynn County police were investigating a report by a Brunswick woman who said she was robbed by a well-dressed man and woman Friday night in a supermarket parking lot.

The 25-year-old woman wasn't injured. She told investigators that she was robbed at gunpoint in the parking lot of Publix, 110 Altama Connector, said Lt. Ted McDonald of the Glynn County Police Department.

McDonald said the woman described the robbers as a man and woman. She said they approached her after she parked her car. The couple got into the vehicle uninvited, and the man pulled out a small-caliber, semi-automatic pistol. The man demanded the contents of her purse and her jewelry, the woman told investigators.

The woman said as the robbers got out, they told her to drive away without looking at them.

McDonald said the robbery appears to be an isolated case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Glynn police detective Craig Culp at (912) 554-7840 or Silent Witness at (912) 264-1333. Callers can remain anonymous.
