Man Robbed in Parking Lot of Moreland Avenue Krystal
Victim told police that gunman took $900.
ORMEWOOD PARK — A man waiting on a friend in the parking lot of the Krystal restaurant at 415 Moreland Ave. said he was robbed by a gunman Saturday afternoon, Atlanta police said.
The victim told police he was at the fast food eatery to meet a friend. The victim said he happened to be waiting outside his vehicle and was chatting on his mobile phone and as he finished the conversation, he saw another man exit a newer model white Jeep Cherokee on the other side of the parking lot.
The victim told police the man approached him asking to use his mobile phone and when the victim agreed, the man pulled out a black-colored gun with a tan handle and demanded his money.
The victim, whose son was in the back seat of his vehicle, said he had $900 and turned it over. The gunman ran back to the Jeep, which had three other occupants, and fled the scene.
The victim gave chase but lost track of the Jeep at some point and returned to Krystal to call police.
