Cartersville police have jailed a local man for allegedly attempting to rob a local business Monday evening while covering his face with women’s underwear.

Reports state Icar St. Valentine Channer, age 62, wore a black toboggan and held yellow panties over his face as he tried to get a cashier at Dollar General to give him four $20 bills out of the register. When the cashier told him he couldn’t open it up, Channer left the store and was later found by police at the nearby Church’s Chicken where they say he had the toboggan, panties and a large knife in his possession.

Channer faces charges of Robbery and Concealing Identity. He was booked into the Bartow County Jail about 8 pm Monday.
