MOULTRIE — Two people, including a juvenile boy, were apprehended after they allegedly pushed a man off his bicycle and stole it Tuesday afternoon.
Travon Jamal Jackson, 17, of 247 Kendallwood Road, was charged with making terroristic threats and acts, theft by taking and obstruction. The boy was charged with theft by taking.
A Moultrie police officer responded to Fifth Street Southwest at 5:36 p.m. Tuesday about the theft. The officer spoke with Nolan Thompson, who stated he was riding his bicycle past the Woodmen of the World Park, also on Fifth Street Southwest, when he was approached by several black males. During the incident, Thompson was pushed off the bicycle, and it was stolen from him.
Thompson stated the theft had just happened when the officer arrived, and the thieves were still at the park. When the officer arrived at the park, he saw a black male riding a bicycle that match the description of Thompson’s bicycle. The man riding the bicycle told the officer he was riding the bicycle while others played basketball.
The officer requested assistance then went to the basketball court and spoke with Jackson and the juvenile boy. The man seen riding the bicycle and his brother identified both as being involved in the theft, police said, and they were placed under arrest.
While being placed under arrest, Jackson allegedly yelled at Thompson and threatened to shoot him. Jackson was taken to Colquitt County Jail, and the boy was taken to the Moultrie Police Department before being turned over to his mother.
