According to a news release from the Bibb Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a call of a personal robbery at the Exxon Food Mart at 2630 Emery Highway around 7 p.m. Friday.
They were told that a 51-year-old man had just left the store when a male suspect came up to him and asked him for a cigarette.
The suspect grabbed the victim’s wallet, money, and items from the store before running away.
