Federal, state and local authorities are searching for at least two people who robbed a Dunbar Armored truck and physically assaulted the driver behind a Barrow County bank Tuesday.
The incident occurred just before 8 a.m. at the Bank of America in the 100 block of North Broad Street in downtown Winder, police Chief Jim Fullington told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Four schools in the area — Winder-Barrow High School, Russell Middle School, Winder Elementary School and the Center for Innovative Teaching — were placed on lockdown because of their proximity to the scene, authorities said.
The driver of the armored truck was servicing a drive-up ATM behind the bank when the people, who were wearing masks and hiding behind a fence line, attacked the driver, Winder police Capt. Chris Cooper said in a news release.
