Jacquelyn Ailles says she always knew what she'd do if she ever got robbed.

"I'm always thinking, 'Boy, if anybody robs me, I'm going to fight back. They're not going to get this," says Ailles.

But, she says that didn't happen when it came down to it.

"I was thinking the sooner he takes what he wants, the sooner he gets out," says Ailles.

Ailles works at a Texaco convenience store on West Main Street in Dothan.

She was robbed Friday morning by a man looking for quick cash and tobacco.

"He put his hands up and flung himself on the counter and was looking at the money and stuff. I said take whatever you want. He followed me over to the cigarettes. I unlocked it, and he said 'Newports.',"says Ailles.

Now, Ailles says she's afraid to work alone at night.

"My life isn't worth two cartons of cigarettes and under $100. I've asked them and asked them to put two people on third shift. If I were a robber and I saw two people, it would make me less likely to come in here... especially two females. They still won't do it," says Ailles.

Until that happens, Ailles says she'll just keep a closer eye on who's coming in the store and say her nightly prayers.

Ailles describes the thief as a thin, black male, standing about 5’6”.
He was last seen wearing a dark shirt, dark pants and a white bandanna over his head.
