Deputies were called to First Baptist Church in Emerson on Jan. 1 and spoke to the man who said he was robbed.

The man told an investigator he was packing up his truck after hunting in the area near N. Main Street in Acworth when a black male weighing approximately 200 pounds with green eyes and wearing a gray hoodie held the barrel of a gun to the back of his neck and told him to hand over the gun bag.
