Macon police are looking for two gunmen who fired a shot, hit an employee and held up the Family Dollar store at 4925 Bloomfield Road.
Officers were dispatched to the store at about 9:50 p.m. Tuesday after two black males with purple bandanas over their faces took cash from the store, robbed the worker and fled but came back and confronted a female customer, according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.
The men demanded her purse and keys and got away in her truck, the release stated.
Police are looking for a dark-colored 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup with tinted windows and Georgia license plate number BCL1991.
Both men were wearing gray hooded sweatshirts, but one had on black pants and the other blue jeans, police said.
Monday morning at about 7:30 a.m., two men wearing purple masks and armed with handguns robbed the Nu-Way at 5572 Bloomfield Road.
The men jumped over the counter and took the cash drawer out of the cash register before striking a customer in the face with a gun and taking the customer’s wallet and keys to a company truck.
Another customer was also robbed of a wallet before the suspects fled in the stolen truck, which police recovered with the cash drawer nearby.
