Worker hit with gun in southwest Bibb armed robbery

An employee at Kim’s Fashion and Internet Café was hit in the head with a long gun during an armed robbery about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office said two men with shirts over their faces came into the store at 5598 Bloomfield Road near Rocky Creek Road.

One of them, who had a blue shirt over his face, approached a female worker who was sitting on a couch, pointed the gun at her and demanded money. The other man, who had a white shirt masking his face, went to the back of the store where a customer was at the gaming machines, according to the sheriff’s office.

The worker did not budge, so the gunmen grabbed the cash register and threw it on the floor in a failed attempt to open it.

He approached the woman a second time and hit her in the head as she was getting up.

They took an undisclosed amount of money and fled.

The woman was treated at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
