From WCTV:

The Camilla, GA, Police Department is investigating an armed robbery at a convenience store in South Georgia Monday night.

Video surveillance released by police shows a man walking into the Kangaroo Express at 301 Highway 19 South with a large knife.

A store clerk told police the man put the knife to her throat and told her “give me the money or I’ll kill you.”

The man then forced the clerk behind the county where she opened the register, according to police. He removed cash from the register and fled the store.

Police say the suspect is described as a black male between 5’8″ and 5’10” tall, wearing black pants and a black t-shirt with a white long sleeved t-shirt underneath.

The suspect was also wearing a black skullcap and a white cloth covered his face.

It’s not known at this time how much cash was taken from the register, police say.
