At approximately 1:15 p.m., three black men entered the 12th & Midtown boutique store while a fourth man reportedly stood outside as a lookout.
According to Sgt. Greg Lyon, the clerk told responding officers that while one of the men inside held her at gunpoint, the two others began to take jeans and t-shirts from the business and raided the register.
The suspects, who all reportedly had their faces partially covered “with hoodies and shirts,” then fled on foot west on 12th St. towards W. Peachtree St.
Several police units canvassed the area but were unable to locate the suspects. According to Lyon, witnesses in the area said the suspects possibly got into a grey four-door sedan and fled.
The store, which relocated from Buckhead last year, is situated adjacent to 77 12th’s residential lobby facing 12th St.
