ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  New leads Friday in two unsolved crimes in Albany.

Police hope drawings by a GBI sketch artist will help them find the culprits. On January 28th a man broke in an Owens Avenue home.

When two women there confronted him he grabbed a kitchen knife and cut them on the chest, arms, and hands.

Police released a sketch based on the victims' description.

The violent burglar is a black man, 35 to 40 years old, with dark brown complexion, a goatee, and a bald head.

He has a stocky-muscular build and wore a hoodie at the time.

Police are also looking for a masked gunman who robbed the Quick Stop in the 700 block of Johnson Road January 17th.

He's a young black man with short dreads. He wore blue jeans and a dark puffy jacket.

If you have any information about either case call Albany Police or crime stoppers at 436-TIPS.
