Armed robbers raise concern in Americus

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Police are still trying to identify a man who robbed and bit another man over the weekend. Surveillance cameras at the Chevron gas station on East Lamar caught the man walking around the store before the robbery.

The incident is one of several armed robberies in the city in the last week.

A manager at the convenience store says she's taking steps to ensure her clerks' safety.

"What I've been trying to do with my cashiers is to put at least two to a shift so they'll be safe. Making sure that they're counting tills down, don't leave excess money in the drawer and pay attention to the customers," said manager Stephanie Collins.

The Family Dollar on US 19 was also robbed by a man with a shotgun Sunday night.
