CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

Two suspects considered armed and dangerous are on the loose, and wanted by authorities.

Robe Folston is a convicted felon, with a rap sheet dating back to 1991. His list of crimes includes false imprisonment, several aggravated assaults, and obstruction of justice.

"We've arrested Folston on several occasions. Usually we've had to fight, wrestle, chase. He doesn't come easily," explains Lt Carlos Michael of the Chatham County Sheriff's Department.  "He's to going to do what he wants to do. He's on probation. Hasn't reported to probation since he got out in 2012. He hasn't paid restitution, $15,000 in restitution that he owes for medical bills toward the victim. He's considered armed and dangerous."
 
Investigators believe the 39-year-old Folston still in Savannah, possibly off 39th street, near the intersection of Bull and Montgomery streets.  

Tim Harden, is wanted for a brutal assault on someone he called a friend.

"Mr. Harden got into an argument with the victim," explains Detective Kevin Grogan of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police. "They disagreed about a few things. Mr. Harden left, little while later he came back, produced a hammer and struck the victim in the head twice."

The victim is still recovering, Harden, still running.
 
"This guy is willing to hit a friend in the head with a hammer," said Grogan. "What's he willing to do to someone else when he's more desperate."

Timothy Harden is charged with aggravated assault, and is considered armed and dangerous.  If you know where Timothy Harden is, call Savannah-Chatham Metro police or Crimestoppers at 912-234-2020.
 
"Mr, Harden, it's about time we get this thing over with," says Grogan. "Come on in and we will get it handled."
