Masked gunman attacks family during robbery

Posted: Updated:
BARTOW COUNTY, Ga. - A Bartow County grocery store was robbed by a masked gunman, but it’s what the robber did to the manager and his family that has many people angry.
 
5 Forks Grocery and Restaurant is a favorite of many local residents in Bartow County. The store is run by a young family that is well liked within the community.
 
According to Bartow County deputies the store was recently robbed by a masked gunman. Deputies said the robber walked into the store demanding the manager give him cash or he would kill him.
 
Investigators said the manager handed him the money, but then the robber got mad and hit the clerk in the face with his gun. The robber then allegedly pushed the manager’s wife, who was holding the couple’s baby, into a cigarette rack and ran off.
 
Deputies said they found clothes matching that of the suspect nearby, but do not have much else to go on. Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to call the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office.
