January 23, 2006

Thomasville, Georgia- Investigators in Thomasville are looking for a man who attacked a store clerk with scissors.

It happened at Sacs convenience store Friday night. Fortunately, a customer came into the store about a minute later and scared the man off.

Investigators say they're making this case a priority because of the robber's violent behavior. "He laid hands on her immediately. He had a weapon, was very physical with the clerk. She did sustain some tears to her clothes, and some cuts," says Criminal Investigations supervisor, Pascal Autrey.

The clerk is recovering and will be fine. Investigators say the attacker was black, in his 30's, about 5'5", and may have some skin problems and bad front teeth.
