    ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. - Police are hoping someone will recognize a man caught on surveillance video robbing a convenience store early Monday morning.

    Investigators released an image of the man wearing a neon-colored jacket and tennis shoes. 

    He’s accused of holding up the Flashfoods convenience store off Highway 138 in Rockdale County while customers were still inside.

    “It’s very shocking. I couldn't imagine something like that happening here,” a store customer told Channel 2’s Alyssa Hyman


    Despite half of the man's face being covered by a hood, police are still hoping someone may recognize him.

    "We got statements from everyone they got a good look at him and then we have the video surveillance," said Yolande Lovingood-Moore with the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office.

    For people like Jessica Edwards who visit this store often, the news is unsettling.

    "It's crazy. It's very uneasy considering I'm in here so much," she said. 

    Investigators are working with the shop to find out how much money he took. They think he's probably in his late teens to early 20s and about 5 foot, 6 inches to 5 foot, 8 inches tall.
