Atlanta police say a man was robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday night just after exiting his car in an East Atlanta Village parking lot.

According to Sgt. Greg Lyon, the victim told responding officers that he arrived in his car at Graveyard Tavern’s back parking lot before 9 p.m. After exiting his car, he was approached by two black males, one whom said, "stay where you are."

According to Lyon, the victim complied and also put his arms up in the process. The taller male suspect then ordered the shorter one to go through the victim's pocket and he removed his wallet and cellphone.

The perpetrators then ordered the victim to walk towards the dumpster and one said, "hurry up before I shoot you."

They reportedly took his car keys and tossed it in the parking lot located at 1245 Glenwood Avenue. The perpetrators then left on foot going towards Brownwood Park.

The victim described one man as being in his mid-30s, wearing a dark hoodie, black beanie, and standing about 6-foot-2. He was missing his front tooth according to the victim’s report. The other male was described as standing 5-foot-6, in his 20s and wearing a dark hoodie.
