  • The robber left his face exposed on surveillance video, police said.

Police are seeking the “dangerous person” who robbed a gentleman’s club in Clayton County last month.

Two workers were leaving Rumors when a man with a gun approached them and ordered them back inside, Channel 2 Action News reported.

“Obviously he surprises the two employees when they come out,” said Maj. Chris Matson of Forest Park police.

Surveillance video shows the armed man confront the managers about 6 a.m. on Dec. 21, demanding the keys to the business.

“He gets a key from the manager,” Matson said, “and then opens up the door and then forces them both back inside at gunpoint.”

The robber forces the workers to open the safe, robs the club, then runs outside, Channel 2 reported.

Although he got into a car driven by another person, the robber may have left behind a key piece of evidence. He initially had something to cover his face, but didn’t use it. And his face was captured on the video.

“Luckily he forgot to pull it up before he walked up to them,” Matson said. 

So police hope someone can identify the man. 

“Just call and let us know who he is,” Matson said. “Obviously he's a dangerous person. We need to put him in jail.”
