Business owners don't feel safe

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The female staff of Easy Pay Loan Company are keeping their front door locked, and carrying guns, after a man tried to push his way into the business about 8:45AM Tuesday.

Manager Melissa Griffin wouldn't go on camera, but tells WALB's Jim Wallace that she was able to get the door between herself and the attacker, and lock him outside.

She says the man was about to rob her. She described the suspect as a black man, about 5' 7" wearing a red and white shirt, hoodie, and jeans.

She says that after this incident, and last week's robbery of their neighbor, Doyal's, they aren't taking chances, and they just plain don't feel safe anymore. She has posted a warning on her Facebook page.

Griffin says that customers to the business in the 900 block of West Oglethorpe should knock on the door to be let in. They are taking immediate steps to improve their security.
