West Point Police Department Chief of Investigations Albert Lee recalls an armed robbery case which took place in May.
According to an incident report provided by Lee, officers were dispatched to the North Mississippi Medical Center during the evening of May 26 in reference to a possible armed robbery.

The report indicates the victim refused to comply with the burglar; in response, the offender reportedly â€śhit him in the face with the gunâ€ť which in turn produced a â€ślarge gash.â€ť The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of the head wound.
