Atlanta police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a group of men who beat and robbed a man this week at the Edgewood Retail District.
According to the police report, the incident occurred shortly after midnight on Tuesday. That’s when surveillance video captured the parking deck attack of four men against a lone male victim.
The victim told investigators he was talking on his cell phone when four men in a white Mitsubishi Galant pulled up and exited the vehicle. The victim attempted to ride away on his bike, but was reportedly punched in the face by the suspects, who took his bag with his wallet in it before speeding off.
The popular shopping center is located at 1250 Caroline Street near Little Five Points.
Investigators are examining whether the suspects are linked to other recent area robberies, including one last week on Decatur Street where police say a man and woman robbed two people at gunpoint. Police released sketches of those suspects this week.
Any information on the case can be submitted anonymously to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online www.crimestoppersatlanta.org or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637). Persons do not have to give their name or any identifying information to be eligible for the reward of up to $2,000 for the arrest and indictment of the suspects.
