Attempted armed robber arrested in Byron

After American Eagle Food Mart in Byron reported an attempted robbery early Friday morning, Byron police arrested the man suspected of the attempted robbery.

Police took Stephen Eugene Wade into custody around 7 p.m. Friday night and charged him with two counts of aggravated assault, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery and possession of a firearm during a felony.

He is being held at the Peach County LEC.

Security footage showed a masked man trying to rob American Eagle Food Mart with a shotgun.

An employee's husband in the store fought off the armed man, forcing him to fire into the floor. The man forced the intruder outside, and the man ran back inside. The would-be robber fled the scene.
