Man Robbed at Gunpoint in East Atlanta Village
Victim said he was robbed by fellow patron of local club.
EAST ATLANTA — A man reported Sunday that he was robbed at gunpoint while sitting in his car.
According to the victim, he was in the Asylum bar at 551 Flat Shoals Ave. and left at about 11:40 p.m. to take a short rest in his car, which was parked about 200 feet north of the club.
The victim told police he sensed someone following him but thought nothing of it.
As he sat in his car, he said he heard a tap on the passenger side window and saw black automatic pistol pointed at him.
The gunman told him to give up his items and the victim — who said he recognized the gunman because he saw him in Asylum earlier that evening — handed over his wallet and mobile phone.
The gunman ran west down Stokeswood Avenue.
No one at Asylum said they knew the gunman.
