She had been sitting in the vehicle for about 10 minutes when a blue sedan pulled up next to her vehicle. A black male exited the passenger side of the blue sedan and opened Victim’s car door. He put a gun to her head and said, "Get the f**k out of the car or I'll shoot you" and he snatched her phone out of her hand. A second male exited the driver side of the suspect vehicle held a gun to Victim. The victim stepped out of the vehicle, and the suspects drove her stolen vehicle and their original sedan westbound on Greenwood Ave.

The vehicle stolen was a blue 2016 Audi Q5 with Georgia license. In the vehicle was the victim's brown leather backpack, a brown Tory Birch wallet, her driver’s license, and various credit cards.

On July 10th, at 11:16 PM police responded to a report of a pedestrian . Upon arrival, an officer met with victims who stated their group of three had been walking to bars close by.

One suspect ran in front of the group and pointed a handgun at the victims, saying “Give me your wallets and phones! I’m not playing, I will shoot you.” The other suspect stayed behind the group, pinning them. The suspect at the rear took Victim 2’s phone and wallet. When he realized that the wallet did not have cash in it, he returned the wallet but kept her iPhone 8. The suspect at the front took both other victims’ phones and wallets.
