Atlanta, GA: Sandy Springs Police are investigating three robberies that may be the work of one person over a four-day period. On April 14, a male suspect shot a 32-year-old Indian resident of 431 Summer Drive in what is believed to be a robbery attempt, according to a release on the Sandy Springs police website. The victim is recovering at Grady Hospital. The weapon used was a .380 caliber pistol.
The husband was shot in the stomach after his wife opened the door, according to a post on the Eye on Crime Facebook page. The Indian couple is reportedly new to Atlanta.
On April 9, a man was robbed at the Extended Stay Hotel at 905 Crestline Parkway. The suspect is described as a black male, 6’-0”, thin, and with a medium to dark complexion. He had a silver handgun. The victim’s credit card was taken during the robbery and used at the Wal-Mart Supercenter at 2635 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth.
On April 13, the suspect made contact with a man outside his home at 342 Summer Drive. The suspect was described as 6’0” and thin, with a medium to dark complexion. The suspect demanded the victim’s 42-inch television and wallet. The suspect was described almost identically in all three incidents. The victims said the suspect displays a calm and soft spoken demeanor but quickly becomes aggressive.
From these reports, we believe that they are connected. The locations are all within a short time frame and concentrated area. The suspect later used a credit card at the Super Wal-Mart in Duluth, GA. The photos show the suspect and a woman leaving the store on April 10 at 1:50 am.
