Robbery 800 Block Greenwood Ave - 11/25/2018
On November 25 at 1:11 AM, police responded to a report of an armed person on the 800-block of Greenwood Avenue.  While patrolling the area, officers were flagged down near the intersection of Saint Charles Ave and Bonaventure Ave by two white female victims who reported that they had just been robbed at gunpoint.  The victims had been walking west on Greenwood Ave NE when they noticed a man walking in front of them.  The man turned off the sidewalk toward one of the homes to the left of the victims.  As the victims walked past the location where he had turned, the same man came back on the sidewalk and began to walk behind them.  The suspect came up close behind them and demanded they give him their money while he pointed a silver handgun at them both.  Both victims described the suspect as a you (early 20’s) black male, clean shave, about 6’0” wearing all black (skull cap, hoody and jeans).  The first victim pulled out her credit cards, but the suspect said he did not want credit cards, only cash.  The first victim said she did not have any cash, but the second victim gave the suspect $20.  After handing over the money, both victims ran from the scene, south on Bonaventure until they reached Saint Charles and flagged down police officers on patrol.  Police continued to patrol the area following the incident but were unable to locate the suspect.  None of the nearby homes appeared to have any visible security cameras.

Burglary 800 Block Saint Charles Av - 12/5/2018
On December 5 just before 11:00 PM, police were dispatched to a residential burglary call on the 800 block of Saint Charles Ave.  The victim advised that he left his ground floor apartment around 12:45 PM and did not return until 10:45 PM.  Upon his return, the victim discovered the front door to his apartment unlocked, though he knew he had locked it when he departed.  When he entered the apartment, he discovered that a kitchen window had been broken from the outside.  In addition, a number of his personal items had been stolen, including a white in color older model MacBook, a Sony DSC-H300 digital camera and a discman (CD player).  Officers were unable to retrieve any fingerprints from the outside of the window frame, and there were no security cameras located in the area.

Robbery Greenwood Av/Ponce De Leon Pl - 12/17/2018 (BELTLINE)
On December 17, 2018 at 8:39 PM police responded to a pedestrian robbery at the intersection of Greenwood NE and Ponce De Leon PL NE.  The two victims had been walking home via the Beltline when they were robbed at gunpoint by three black males.  The first victim stated that he dropped his wallet and a food container he had been carrying, while his companion dropped his phone, wallet and keys.  They then ran in the opposite direction and ended up at the intersection of Greenwood Ave and Ponce de Leon Pl where they called 911 from the first victim’s phone.  The suspect with the gun was described as a fat male with a beard, brownish hoody, dark color pants.  The second suspect was wearing a gray-white hoody, light pants and shoes.  A third suspect was dressed in all dark clothes and rode a “Bird” scooter.  While speaking with police, the second victim checked his Wells Fargo bank account on his friend’s cell phone and discovered that the suspect tried to use the stolen Wells Fargo debit card, which was declined, but a second transaction on the card at the MARTA station went through successfully.  The second victim tried to track his iPhone from his friends’ phone, but was not successful.
