A convenience store clerk told authorities someone pepper sprayed and robbed him while he attempted to make a deposit at a drop box behind a bank Sunday morning.
The incident happened about 10:15 a.m. behind the Wells Fargo bank, located at 150 Tom Hill Sr. Blvd., according to a Bibb County Sheriffs Office news release.
The clerk described the person that pepper sprayed him as about 6 feet tall with a slender build. The bank was closed when the incident happened. The person, who was wearing a black mask and long-sleeved black shirt, snatched a deposit bag and fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash, the release stated.
The clerk was uninjured, but he received treatment for the pepper spray at a local hospital.
