Laurens Police were dispatched to a Lurey Street residence at 5:47 yesterday afternoon on an Armed Robbery report. A man in his mid-70s indicated he had been sitting on his front porch when three males, perhaps between 20 and 30 years old, walked up to him. They asked to speak with him inside his house. He said he stepped inside and the subjects asked for his money. He gave them his wallet from which they took between $75 and $100 in cash. He said he believed all three males had handguns. They hit him with something, possibly the handguns. EMS responded and treated the victim for apparent injury to his head. His left eye was already swollen shut by that time. The three robbers reportedly left in a car.
