Local residents and customers had little sympathy for the armed robber.

Reverend Amos Connors – who was there to pick up a suit – told WMC Action News 5: “The young people don’t believe in nothing but to take, and that’s it. God didn’t put us here to take from one another. I’m not going to take nothing from you, because it don’t belong to me.”

Resident Charlene Granbberry – who lives near where the attempted armed robbery occurred – sounded off to WREG: “For you to come out here and try to take something from somebody? No! They aren’t going to let you take it! No, folks aren’t going to let you take their stuff from them.”
