Joel Christopher Martin, 43, was also arraigned Wednesday on charges that include four counts of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Martin was arrested in late May at Shelnutt Grocery, 978 Welcome to Arnco Road in west Coweta County, after he came after an ex-girlfriend working at the grocery store. Martin had a shotgun when he entered the business. The gun was wrestled away by employees, who then detained him by force until police arrived.
Martin, a registered sex offender, was a wanted fugitive from Alabama.
Investigators learned upon arrest that Martin was also wanted for rape in Dale County, Ala.
At arraignment, Martin pleaded not guilty and his case is expected to go to trial on Nov. 5.
