ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police Department's Investigations Division wants the public's assistance  locating Wesley Lamar Anderson.

The 45 year old Anderson is wanted for Aggravated Assault and Aggravated Battery that happened almost three and a half years ago.

APD says that on October 5, 2011, he attempted to rob a man at gunpoint in the 1700 block of East Oglethorpe Boulevard. 

A botched broad daylight robbery left a man shot behind Long John Silvers that day. Giorgi Kartvilish, who was 32 at the time, was struck in the arm, and rushed to Phoebe Putney Hospital.

Police found the suspect's black Chevy S-10 pickup, abandoned, about a mile away. But they never found the bandits.

They have not said how they identified Anderson as a suspect in the crime.

The Georgia Department of Corrections says that Anderson has a criminal history going back to 1989. His crimes range from conspiracy to aggravated assault, to cocaine sales. He was sentenced to a 30-year term on the cocaine conviction, but was released from Coffee State Prison in 1999.

Anderson is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who has information regarding this incident should call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS the Criminal Investigative Bureau at (229) 431-3288.
