Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Albany Police are looking for two men who attacked and robbed a city worker Tuesday morning. The solid waste worker was pulled from his truck and beaten just after 10 AM.
The city worker, 37-year old Gregory McAfee, was parked in the alley behind the former Heritage House Hotel on Oglethorpe. He tells police two men pulled him out of the truck, beat him in the head, then took his wallet and cell phone.
Paramedics treated him for his injuries. Police say it's a reminder to always be aware of our surroundings.
APD Media Manager Phyllis Banks said, "Very frustrating to see something like this when somebody's just out here doing what they do to bring money home into their household. He was just out here working, doing his job. We want people to be aware of their surroundings, whether you're working, you're at home, in your yard, anytime. Unfortunately, we are living in times where we have to be cautious of our surroundings."
McAfee has worked for Albany public works for about seven years. He was taken to Phoebe Putney hospital for treatment where he is in good condition.
Police are looking for the robbers. If you have any information you should call crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.
