It all happened Friday morning at the Metro PCS store on Winchester near the airport.

We talked to a worker at that store and she told us Greer came in wearing a mask and attacked her. At first she thought he was joking around. She stated she recognized him because he hangs out at that store and his cousin, Ayers, works there.

According to arrest records,Ayers admitted to planning the crime while Greer executed it.

He got away with more than $1,100 from the store’s safe.
