ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Three employees of an Albany Mall business are robbed at gunpoint Thursday night.
Three Hibbett Sporting Goods employees told police they were walking together in the Mall about 9:30, to deposit the store's money in a deposit box, when a man came up behind them with a gun.
He put the gun in the back of the employee carrying the money bag, grabbed it, and ran. No one was injured.
"They did do the right thing," said Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks-Whitley. "They walked together as a group to make the bank deposit. But what we need to stress, when you are going to make a bank deposit, like they did last night, you need to be aware of your surroundings."
The employees did not get a good look at the armed robber, because he came up behind them, but he is described as a 20 to 25 year old man, about 5-foot-7 or 5-fot-8 in height, wearing a red shirt and red plaid pants.
