COLUMBIA — Police have requested warrants for two suspects in connection with a Thursday night armed robbery at Casey's General Store on Paris Road.

One of the suspects struck a woman on the head, causing an injury. She did not require hospitalization, said Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer.

The woman identified the suspects, whom she knew, as Kecia Goldman, 26, and Damian Dancy, 23, according to a department news release.

Officers were dispatched to the store at 6:47 p.m. The woman told police a black SUV blocked her car while she was pumping gas. The suspects began arguing with the woman about a stolen rental vehicle before Goldman struck the woman over the head with an unknown object

The women then said Goldman took money from her before driving away in the SUV.

The woman told police a handgun was visible in Goldman’s pocket. Dancy implied he also had one, which the woman did not see.

Police are asking for anyone who knows of the suspects’ whereabouts to contact the Columbia Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 875-8477.
