A bow hunter told Coweta County authorities he was robbed at gunpoint Sunday while out looking for a deer he shot earlier.

Twenty-nine-year-old Eric Sumner was hunting on property off Poplar Road east of Newnan when he headed back to his truck, said Major Jimmy Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.

Once at his truck, Sumner told investigators he was approached by a man who accused him of trying to shoot him.

The suspect then pointed a semi-automatic pistol at Sumner and took his bow, wallet, cell phone and a rifle he had inside his truck, the major said.

The suspect was described as a white male, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and wearing baggy blue jeans, a dark shirt and a half-face mask.”
