Thomasville Police are looking for two men who attempted to rob a store, scaring customers and clerks.
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -Police continue to search for clues in a violent Friday night armed robbery that left an east Albany store clerk dead. Investigators released surveillance video of the suspects who shot 19-year-old Sentos Vicente after he refused to give up money from the register.
Just before 9:30 Friday night, two men with ski masks barged through the front door and demanded money from Vicente. The gunman managed to pull some money out of the register.
"We are headed into the holiday season and this is not a time for businesses to let their guard down," said APD Spokesperson, Phyllis Banks. "Anyone should call police if they see any suspicious activity."
The gunman is wearing a zip up jacket, and blue jeans with a tan colored belt hanging down. The other is in jeans and a dark sweatshirt. Check out his shoes. They resemble black Converses. After Vicente resists the gunman, he shoots and kills him. Both suspects rush out the door.
The second store clerk, 16-year-old Enrique Locus, was not harmed. District Attorney Greg Edwards says family and translators are working with police.
"The language barrier seems to be one of the reasons they're targeted more often," said Edwards. "We've got to make sure our Hispanic neighbors are protected and we need to make that line of communication open."
The staff posted a sign that says the store is closed Saturday due to an armed robbery.
This store was the target of a robbery May 28, 2009. One loyal customer says he's never seen any problems until now. Police are making sure more interpreters are available to handle crimes involving Hispanics.
