Two men were involved in the incident. The other suspect is still unknown.


The incident:

Police said two men entered a South Slappey Boulevard store around 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 4.

One of the men was wearing a white shirt and shorts, later identified as Cauley, and the second man was wearing a red shirt and black shorts, according to APD.

The clerk told police the man in the white shirt entered the store without a face mask and they asked him to put one on while in the store.

“The male became furious and left the store after causing a scene. The second male grabbed a phone charger then walked to the counter,” according to an incident report. “While at the counter, he began to yell at the (clerk) for refusing service to his friend for not wearing a mask. The (clerk) then asked him to leave the store and refused to serve him. He began yelling, then reached (into) his pocket and pulled out a handgun.”

The report states the man with the gun banged it on the glass and pointed it at the store clerk.

The two men then left the store in an unknown truck, according to police.


Anyone with any information on the other suspect’s identity is asked to call the Albany Police Department at (229) 431-2100 or Albany Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS.
