Tifton robbery may be connected to other crimes

TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A Tifton man is charged with robbing a woman, and police say he may be connected to other crimes.

The woman was robbed in the parking lot of Church's chicken on East 5th Street Tuesday.

She told police she gave a man and a woman a ride to that parking lot and the man demanded money, grabbed her by the hair, took her money and then ran away. She said she thought he had a gun.

Police say the two suspects are Marcus Banks and Amanda Perez Wiggins. Authorities tracked them down yesterday and held them at gunpoint because they thought they could be armed. Banks was charged with robbery.  Police are still investigating.
