ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany Police Department says that they are looking for an armed man who may have robbed two men in separate incidents Monday night.

Hunter Foster told officers that he had been robbed just after midnight as he walked through the parking lot of the Quick Way Food Mart/Petro Station. He said a black man in a dark colored jacket, camouflage cargo shorts, bright colored shoes, and a dark colored baseball cap pointed a gun at him, and told him to get on the ground. 

The robber took his wallet, belt, phone, hair pick, two gold chains, watch, and even the cookies he had with him.

In the other case, William Chunn said he was walking in the 600 block of Sands Drive to a homecoming party, when he noticed a man walking ahead of him. That man stopped, turned, and asked Chunn why he was following him. Chunn said he turned and ran, but the man caught him, and hit him in the head with what he thought was a gun.

The attacker demanded that Chunn give up all his property, but Chunn wouldn't do it, and the man ran off.

Chunn got a laceration on his right ear.

If you can help police catch this dangerous man, call 436-TIPS.
