Americus man robbed, bitten by thief

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Americus Police say a man was bitten by a man who snatched $75 from his shirt pocket.

Police say a man asked lawnmower mechanic Michael McDaniel to check a lawn mower he had around the side of the Chevron Food Mart #2, on East Lamar Street.

While looking at the mower, the man snatched the money from McDaniel's pocket, and jumped into a white car.

McDaniel reached into the car window, and tried to switch off the car's engine, and that's when the man bit him, and drove off.

Police say McDaniel was not treated by EMS for his bite wound, and they are looking for the thief.  So far, we don't have a description of the thief or the car.
