A gunman aborted an armed robbery before getting any money from a south Macon store Sunday night.
Just before 9:25 p.m., a black man with a handgun walked up to the front counter and demanded money from the clerk at the Family Dollar at 1415 Rocky Creek Road, according to a release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Perhaps it was taking too long or the culprit had second thoughts, because as the clerk was trying to open the cash register, the gunman ran out of the store.
He was wearing a gray shirt over his face, a black jacket, black basketball shorts and black shoes.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500, or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
