The owner of the Sunoco on North Main Street in Acworth said a man suspected of having a gun robbed the store Saturday night.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office report, the man called police just after 9:30 p.m. after the suspect entered and handed him a lottery ticket and a note that read, “Give me all cash now.” The suspect then reached into his pocket as though he had a gun.

The owner told the suspect he could not hand over all the cash or he would be fired. The suspect then demanded $40 and all the items on the counter, which totaled $54. He then fled toward Cobb County in a gray Chevrolet Lumina.

A full description of the suspect could not be provided.

Pedestrian struck on Highway 41

A man attempting to cross Highway 41 at Grassdale Road late Saturday night was struck by a motorist.

According to the Cartersville police report, about 11:30 p.m. the driver of a 2003 Chevy Silverado was traveling south on Highway 41 when the pedestrian attempted to walk east across the roadway.

The driver said as he passed through the green light an unknown object struck the front passenger side and mirror. He said he could not see what hit him because it was dark.

The pedestrian was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital.

No citations were issued.
