Abbeville Police are hopeful someone will recognize a man accused of attempting to rob Dollar General on Park Ave. Since releasing surveillance pictures on April 19, police have not received tips about the suspect. As investigators continue to gather more information, they're trying to find a couple who walked into the store just before the attempted robbery, Lt. David Hardy said. They're hoping they saw something that could help them solve this crime.
The attempted robber is accused of pulling a gun on the clerk and demanding money, but he got away empty-handed. Police say the suspect is a tall, skinny man dressed in dark clothing with a white cloth on his face. They say the suspect was fully masked and was wearing gloves. If you have any information about this incident, call Abbeville police at 337-893-2511.
