Wanted: Atlanta police seek man involved in 8 armed robberies

Atlanta police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who is thought to be involved in eight armed robberies from Oct. 21 to Nov. 20.

The man is described as about 6 feet tall, slim and was wearing dark clothing, Officer Jarius Daugherty said in a statement.

Police also have released a composite sketch of the man. “The suspect is believed to be armed,” Daugherty said.

In one robbery, the victim told police he was getting something out of his car when a man walked up to him, pulled out a handgun and asked for his wallet, cellphone and other items. He stole the victim’s car and house keys, debit and credit cards and his driver’s license, according to the incident report.

In another robbery, the victim left the elevator from the parking garage and began walking toward her apartment, according to police. The man pointed a gun and demanded her possessions. He took her iPhone, Macbook, wallet and apartment keys.

Tipsters with pertinent information can remain anonymous, and be eligible for rewards of up to $2,000, by contacting Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477, texting information to 274637 or visiting crimestoppersatlanta.org.
