A Bryant man is in custody in connection with an alleged incident at a gas station in Hammondville recently.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said the incident occurred on Nov. 6 at the gas station on Highway 117.

“A young woman that was pumping gas was harassed by an unidentified male driving a white Mercedes,” said Welden.

Welden said the offender, later identified as Eugene Evans, 44 of Bryant, walked around the woman’s car and acted as if the was going to the driver’s side.

“After the woman got in the vehicle and locked her doors, [Evans] parked across the road and filmed the woman,” said Welden. “After an acquaintance arrived to help the woman, the subject had driven to the interstate and seemed to be waiting on the victim.”

Welden said Evans was also spotted at a Trenton, Georgia gas station exhibiting similar odd behavior.

Investigators were able to identify Evans after securing security camera footage and posting images on social media. Evans was taken into custody Tuesday night by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and transferred to the DeKalb County Detention Center on a charge of harassment. He currently remains in jail on a $3,000 bond.
