Police in Sandy Springs are searching for two suspects who robbed a Norcross man at gunpoint on Saturday.

Officers responded to the scene around 3:45 p.m. on Saturday after a man said he had been a victim of an armed robbery. The man, who said he works for a landscaping business, was working near the 4700 block of Kitty Hawk Drive.

According to a police report, the victim told officers he was standing near his truck when he saw two men in a U-Haul truck drive by. The man said the U-Haul turned around and pulled up next to him.

The victim told police that’s when the driver took out a black pistol and pointed it at him. According to the report, the victim said the passenger of the truck hopped out and took two Stihl leaf blowers from the victim’s truck.

According to the victim, the suspects didn’t say anything.

The owner of the landscaping company was unable to give serial numbers for the leaf blowers.
