ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A crime spree in Albany overnight has police asking the public's help to find the suspects. Albany police are looking for a man they say robbed a restaurant employee at gunpoint Monday night.

Police say around 11:45 a man ran in the Johnny Carino's on Kensington Court with a gun and demanded money from the assistant store manager, 30-year-old John Dykes. The suspect's face was covered with a bandana, sunglasses, and a dark colored baseball cap.

He got the money and ran out the door. Police haven't made any arrests.

They're asking you to call crime stoppers at 436-TIPS with any information.

A few hours after that armed robbery, someone broke into two Albany businesses, by cutting huge holes in the buildings.

The Coachman Park Grocery on South Jefferson Street was the first one hit around 3:30 Tuesday morning. The burglar used some kind of tool to cut a massive hole in the cement wall on the side of the business. Police say once the burglar was inside he tried taking a few items but failed to make it back out with the items.

Then around 5, the Bio Buzz store on North Slappey Blvd. was broken into the same way. A thief cut a hole in the back of the store and ransacked the business. Police say nothing was taken in that burglary either.
