Albany -- An Albany man is arrested for robbing an East Albany convenience store, and Police are searching for another suspect.

A masked gunman robbed the Quick Buys on Sylvester Road around 7:15 Friday morning. Pointing a pistol at the clerk, the robber took money and ran from the store.

A witness saw the robber jump into a waiting car on Ramsey Road, and gave police the tag number. The car owner, 27-year- old Shaun Yocum was arrested at his home on South Cleveland about an hour later.

Investigators have taken a warrant for 22-year-old Michael Pike. They believe he is the gunman. If you have any information on Pike, please call the Dougherty County Police.
