Two women were injured and a Garden City man was arrested in connection with a robbery early Saturday morning at Walmart.

Quincy Crough, 30, 2606 E. Fair St., was arrested on allegations of aggravated robbery and battery.

Crough allegedly entered Walmart, 3101 E. Kansas Ave., at 2:43 a.m. Saturday and approached two employees near the customer service area. He allegedly punched and pushed both employees to the ground before running behind a cash register and stealing two cans of chewing tobacco, according to Garden City police.

Both employees at the store sustained contusions to the head during the incident.

Doris Davis, 61, was treated at the scene by EMS, and Irma Dominguez, 46, was transported by EMS to St. Catherine Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Crough allegedly left Walmart on foot and was seen running west on Kansas Avenue. Finney County Sheriff's deputies assisted police at the scene and used a K-9 dog to track Crough to the area of his residence, the 2600 block of East Fair Street.

A Garden City police detective collected evidence at Walmart, including surveillance video, which provided a description of Crough. The detective left Walmart and began checking with the businesses in the area of Kansas Avenue and Commanche Drive, according to Garden City Senior Master Patrol Officer Troy Davis.

While the detective was checking the area, he observed Crough walking across a parking lot. Officers responded and arrested Crough without incident.
