ALBANY, Ga. — Two early Monday morning break-ins and an aggravated assault involving a semi-automatic handgun that took place over the weekend are among the incidents the Albany Police Department is currently investigating, reports show.

Reports show that Homerun Foods at 3315 Gillionville Road was broken into just before 3:30 a.m. In that incident, someone is thought to have entered by busting out the front glass door.

When officers responded to an active burglary alarm and observed the broken door, the keyholder stated that cigars and cigarettes were taken by an unknown suspect — or suspects, said Phyllis Banks, spokeswoman for the APD.

Maryland Fried Chicken at 510 N. Slappey Blvd. was hit a few minutes prior at 3:18 a.m., reports show.

The point of entry for the restaurant break-in was determined to be the drive-thru window, which was busted out. After officers responded to the alarm, the keyholder said that an undisclosed amount of cash was taken, Banks said.

In other activity, there was an aggravated assault reported Saturday evening on West Gordon Avenue.

Reports show that the incident took place at 931 W. Gordon Ave. at around 8 p.m. In that case, the victims — a husband and wife — told police an unknown male approached them and began arguing with the husband.

His wife advised her husband to get into the car to prevent a physical altercation. As the couple started to leave, they stated that suspect fired two shots from a semi-automatic handgun, Banks said.

There were no reports of injuries from the incident, Banks said. No suspect or arrest information was immediately available Monday.
