Batton Pleads Guilty to Robbery, Malicious Wounding Charges

Posted: Updated:

A Waynesboro man has admitted robbing a convenience store and attacking the clerk.

Twenty-two-year-old Anthony Charles Batton has pleaded guilty to robbery and malicious wounding charges.

Prosecutors say Batton was high on bath salts when he went into the Stop-In Store on East Broad Street last July. He allegedly took cash and cigarettes, and then struck the cashier in the head with a blunt object, possibly a wrench.

Batton will be sentenced at a later court date.
