Armed Robbery in Vidalia
Thursday, 17 January 2013

January 17--  Vidalia police are looking for a man who robbed a local restaurant manager.

Police Sergeant Garrett Palmer said the holdup occurred about 2:30 a.m. Thursday behind the Kentucky Fried Chicken on Highway 280 West.

Night manager William Cartwright reported he locked the back door to the store and was about to enter his car when he was struck in the back of the head by an assailant.

Cartwright rolled over and saw a man with a handgun who was dressed in black and wearing dark glasses and a hoodie.  He told police the man took the store's bank deposit bag and fled on foot to the southeast.

Palmer says Cartwright may have been struck with a beer bottle and did not suffer serious injuries.
