CUMMING, Ga. — An employee was in a gas station alone making coffee when she heard someone jump over the counter, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

An employee of Citgo, 1410 Atlanta Highway, told deputies she ran toward the front door after she saw the man on the other side of the counter at about 4 a.m. Feb. 14.

She said she must have dropped the coffee grounds while she was running, but doesn’t remember.

As she was running, another man grabbed her by the arms and forced her to her car, which was parked next to the gas pumps.

She thinks the man yelled to the other suspect if had “got everything,” and he yelled back “yes.”

The man who held her down told her to look away, and then he left.

When she looked up, she saw a car drive southbound on Ga. 9.

Deputies said lighters had been knocked over and spilled over the counter by the front register.

They said about $20,800 in cash was taken from the back office.
