AUGUSTA, Ga--- Two people are in jail after investigators say they robbed two men at gunpoint.

Anthony Jones and Chrisola Tarver are charged with armed robbery after investigators say they held up two men Thursday night around midnight on Ninth street in Augusta.

The victims say Jones got out of a blue van and approached them with a handgun demanding money and all their belongings.

They say the gunman had a black hood over his head and used a black bandanna with dollar signs on it to disguise his face. According to the police report, Jones put the gun up to the victim's neck and told the victim to hand over his wallet along with its contents along with a red skateboard. The other victim handed over his skateboard as well.

They say Jones ran from the scene towards Broad Street while Tarver drove off in the van.
