Atlanta police have stepped up patrols in a neighborhood plagued by a string of armed robberies.
There were four violent robberies and car break-ins in two days this week in the Huff Road area of northwest Atlanta, Channel 2 Action News reported.
In one of those robberies, two men walking down the road were jumped by four armed men wearing bandanas. The gunmen forced the victims to take off their pants and hand over their belongings, police told Channel 2.
Several arrests have been made, according to police.
“Last night, we stopped a vehicle with four suspects in it who had just broken into a couple of cars,” Atlanta police Maj. Van Hobbs told Channel 2 on Tuesday. “We’re going to continue to stay in the area, be visible, and have other tactical units in the area that aren’t so visible.”
