VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –The man we showed you on surveillance video, hitting a motel clerk, is in jail Wednesday.

Valdosta Police say it was 31-year old Antonio Cooks who attacked the clerk at the Super 8 Monday night.

The clerk told police Cooks walked in and asked to use the restroom, then hit the clerk in the face and grabbed the cash drawer and ran out.

Shortly after the robbery, a deputy pulled up beside a truck parked on Rolling Pine Road in Lake Park.

He questioned Cooks, and let him go.

Later that night, the deputy searched the woods near where Cooks was parked and found the motel cash drawer.

Cooks was arrested Tuesday night and charged with robbery by force and battery.
