ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police want you to look at surveillance video of a frightening robbery to see if you can help put the dangerous crook behind bars.

The robbery happened early Sunday morning, and the robber is still free.

The video shows a man wearing a stocking mask over his face and dressed in all black robbing the Woodall's store on North Slappey about 2:30 Sunday morning.

You can see him point a pistol right in the face of the two employees as he demands the money from the cash registers.

One customer was in the store at the time. When the employee sets the cash drawer on the counter, the robber grabs the money and runs.

Police say he's black, about 5-feet 6-inches tall, and 160 pounds.

There is a reward for information in the case.
