Man flees from weekend attack

A Phenix City man escaped from a gun-wielding assailant over the weekend while stopped at an intersection.

Jeremy N. Bellamy was at a stop sign on Freeman Road at Old Seale Highway around 11 p.m. Saturday when he said a man jumped out of a nearby vehicle and pointed a gun at him, Phenix City police report.

Bellamy slammed the accelerator and peeled off, turning right.

"The complainant said the man fired one round at him as he drove away," police reported. "That round entered and exited his vehicle."
