ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Police are on the lookout for an escapee who tried to rob a man outside an Albany pool hall Wednesday night.
It happened around 10:20 outside Gameland Billiards on North Slappey Boulevard. Investigators say 37-year-old Tracey Porter was approached by two men armed with guns in the parking of the pool hall.
When the gunmen demanded his car keys, Porter set off the panic button which sent the two men running.
Police identified the suspects as 20-year-old Joshua Potter and 24-year-old Trevor Barber. The two were supposed to return to the Albany Transitional Center last night where they were serving out sentences.
The center serves as an institution that allows convicts the opportunity to work and transition back into society while serving time.
APD officers were able to track down Barber to the 1100 block of 5th Avenue where he was arrested and taken into custody.
According to the Georgia Department of Corrections, Barber was serving a five year sentence for firearms and attempted robbery offenses out of Ben Hill County. He is in the Dougherty County Jail facing aggravated assault and firearms charges.
County K-9 units were called in to assist in the search for Potter who was serving out a three year sentence for burglary offenses in Dougherty County.
He is described as 6'1, 170 pounds. Police say he was last seen wearing black clothing.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact your local law enforcement agency or the Albany Police Department.
