Perry Man Charged With Cutting Store Clerk

Correction: Due to an error in the police news release, this story originally incorrectly identified store employee Larry Sutton.


A Perry man is charged with cutting a store clerk with a knife during an attempted robbery.

A Perry police news release says it happened around 10:30 p.m. Thursday at the Perry Food Mart on Carroll Street.

The release says that when 26-year-old Damien Singletary tried to rob the store, employee Larry Sutton tried to subdue him.

When they fought, police say, Singletary cut Sutton on both hands with a knife.

Several displays and food racks were damaged during the fight, police say, and the robber ran away.

They say search dogs tracked the robber to a home on Forest Street, where police arrested Singletary and found the clothes he wore during the robbery.

He is in the Houston County jail charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Anyone with information on the case can call Perry police at (478) 988-2824.
