Cobb County police said a woman putting groceries in her car at a Vinings Kroger store this week was held up at gunpoint and are seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect.
The robbery occurred around 11 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the store at 3300 Cobb Parkway in the Riverview Village Shopping Center, according to police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce.
Investigators said a man pointed a handgun at the woman and demanded all of her “stuff.”
“The offender fled from the scene on foot southbound on Cobb Parkway after he picked up the victim’s pocketbook from the ground,” Pierce said in a release.
The spokesman said the woman was not injured. The suspect is described as a 5-foot-4 black male with thin build, between 20 to 30 years old and wearing a black sweater with a red design around the neck. He was also wearing black sneakers and khaki pants.
Anyone with information is asked to call Cobb investigators at 770-449-3945.
