THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville Police said an armed robbery suspect was arrested thanks in part to the quick thinking of a shoe store employee.
Officers said Kevarius Wimberly assaulted two Shoe Department employees, while demanding money.
Maj. Wade Glover said there was a third employee inside the store, that hid so she could call 911.
“We quickly responded, we quickly got there," Glover said. “And was able to see a suspect fleeing down the street and across the parking lot from the actual Shoe Department.”
Glover said they set a perimeter and found the suspect minutes later hiding in a storm drain.
Wimberly is facing multiple charges including armed robbery and three counts of aggravated assault.
