• Atlanta Convenience Store Robbed, but Image of Suspects Caught on Tape


  • Atlanta police still have had no luck tracking down two armed men they say robbed a supermarket in Reddy on Monday, March 4. However, the quickie mart, which is located on College Avenue in the historic neighborhood of Kirkland, was able to catch an image of the suspect thanks to the store’s video security system.

    As the owner was exiting his convenience store, he said two men approached him around 10:30 p.m. In one report, an officer wrote that the victim said “The one older suspect pointed the hand gun at him and the two suspects motioned for him to get back in the store.” The proprietor did not put up a fight and after walking inside, was assaulted.

    ”The victim was punched in the face by the suspects, causing a laceration and bruises to his face,” investigators wrote. He was taken to Atlanta Medical Centre and his condition is currently known.

    The suspected robbers purportedly took 450 packs of cigarettes, $400 from the register and the owner’s credit cards and wallet. They used garbage bags to collect all the items they stole. They also made off with his car.

    Anyone with information about the convenience store burglars are asked to call Atlanta police right away.
