Thomasville, GA- A man is accused of robbing a South Georgia store where he used to work.

The owner of Harper Seafood, located along West Jackson Street in Thomasville, says he was closing the store Friday evening shortly before 7 p.m. when he was ambushed.

The owner recognized the robber as his former employee, 23-year-old Terrence Golden, Jr.

Police say Golden pushed the owner against a newspaper rack outside the business and then snatched two bags of money, before taking off on foot.

The store owner and folks from a nearby car wash took off after him.

Lt. Eric Hampton with the Thomasville Police Department said one of the witnesses eventually caught up with Golden in a wooded area along Campbell Street.

The witness held Golden down until police arrived.

Golden was arrested and charged with strong robbery of a business.

The money was recovered and returned to the store's owner.
