Atlanta police are looking for a man and a woman wanted in connection to an Inman Park armed robbery in the 200 block of North Highland Avenue Wednesday night.
The victims — both employees of the Barcelona Wine Bar — were leaving the popular nightspot following the end of their shift around 11 p.m.
The women were approached by a man and a woman demanding money, Matt Futaral, community manager of the North Highland Steel Flats & Shops complex, wrote in an e-mail alert to the neighborhood listserv.
