Atlanta police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a pair of individuals involved in an armed pedestrian robbery last week in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood.
Sketches of the perpetrators have been released by authorities.
According to Officer John Chafee, on June 15 at around 4:30 a.m., a male and female robbed two pedestrians near 486 Decatur Street. The victims advised that they had been standing outside the location talking when they were approached by a black male and black female, both armed with handguns. The perpetrators demanded the victim’s belongings and fled in an early 2000 model gold or silver sedan.
The female was described as dark complexioned, standing approximately 5-foot-10, and with a thin build. She is thought to be in her 30s, with red bangs and facial piercings.
The male was described as light complexioned, standing 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 with a thin build. He is thought to be in his 20s and was last seen wearing a red shirt.
Investigators believe that these perpetrators may be involved in several other pedestrian robberies in this same area and are asking that anyone with information call Crime Stoppers.
