A Lawrenceville man has been charged with the armed robbery of a woman who was sitting in her car outside her Duluth apartment, Gwinnett County police said.
Antonio Rafael Rodriguez-Calderon, 23, has been charged with armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the possession of a felony and financial transaction card fraud.
Rodriguez-Calderon was already in jail when he was served with warrants related to this incident. He was arrested on Nov. 13 by Norcross police on charges including aggravated assault and forgery.
In the Nov. 8 Duluth case, Rodgriguez-Calderon tapped on the victim’s car window with a gun and demanded she hand over her belongings, according to Gwinnett County police. He took her purse, iPhone and wallet before taking the keys out of her car’s ignition, police said. The victim was not hurt.
Rodriguez-Calderon fled from the Breckenridge Boulevard complex in a car driven by a “heavy-set woman,” according to police. That woman has not been identified or arrested. After the robbery, Rodriguez-Calderon used the victim’s debit card at two nearby gas stations, police said.
Rodriguez-Calderon remains in the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond.
