October 30, 2012
ALPHARETTA, Ga. A man was arrested Oct. 25 after allegedly attacking a store clerk and threatening him with a knife.

According to the clerk at the Valero gas station on Old Milton Parkway, Akyle Moses, 22, of Aven Court, Milton, came into the convenience store about 10:14 a.m. and began looking at cellphone chargers. Moses asked the clerk the prices of the chargers, and the clerk explained them to him. The clerk said Moses became "agitated" at the prices. He allegedly threw a charger at the clerk and began cursing at him. The clerk said the two got into a scuffle and Moses then pulled a knife and started swinging it.

Moses then left the store in a gold Honda CRV with a woman in the passenger seat.

Witnesses confirmed a fight broke out between Moses and the clerk. They could not confirm how the fight started, only that Moses had a knife.

Police quickly found Moses' car on Ga. 9 and pulled it over near Windward Parkway.

Moses later told police the clerk made a racial comment toward him, which upset Moses. He allegedly admitted to throwing the phone charger at the clerk and the fight broke out. The police report notes Moses changes his story whether he had a knife or not, at one point saying he had some pens in his hand instead.

He also allegedly told police he "typically carries a gun and stated the clerk was lucky he wasn't carrying it because he probably would have used it."

A knife was not found in Moses' car.

Moses was arrested for aggravated assault and simple battery. He was taken to Fulton County Jail and held on $21,000 bond.

    There goes the race card again...

    So this POS thug lies and says a "racial comment" was said to him (to be sure, the N word). Just like the emotion driven hysterics who say that anyone against Obama and his policies are a racist, eventually those false accusations that are overused will make the real meaning of "racist" meaningless. It's the 21st Century version of the story of the boy who cried wolf.

    I guess the crime is more diverse. Right now we have chop-shops, meth labs, illegal gambling, and car break-ins. A knife wielding psycho is a wrinkle.
