Woman offers reward to catch assailant

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An East Albany woman is offering a reward to catch a man who attacked her and her daughter in the drive-thru lane of a McDonald's.

Surveillance video from the East Ogelthorpe McDonalds about 2:00 on April 14th appears to show the perpetrator as he runs around the car, then takes off in a silver or gray Van.  Tracey Dent and her daughter can then be seen calling 911.

Dent says the man, who she had never seen before, attacked her through her open car window.  

"When I get out of the car, he slaps her on the face.  I got in between them.  And when I got in between them, he picks me up by the throat, off the ground, and slams me into my car."

That left a dent in the side of her car. She says she's had nightmares since the attack.  Dent is now offering a $250 reward for information leading to an arrest.

Call CRIME STOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
