According to APD, the unidentified victim was walking home from Mary's around 2 a.m. when he was approached near Glenwood and Blake avenues by three black males in their early 20s.
"One male was armed with an AK-47 style weapon, another had a semi-automatic handgun," according to a police statement about the incident.
The victim told police that the robbers told him to empty his pockets. After taking his cell phone, they ordered him to walk east on Glenwood Avenue and "not to turn around," preventing him from being able to determine whether they fled on foot or escaped in a vehicle. The victim wasn't injured in the crime.
The robbery follows several brazen crimes in East Atlanta and surrounding neighborhoods, including the high-profile killing of 33-year video game engineer Patrick Cotrona. APD, which believes some of the crimes are linked, and city officials promised to step up patrols in the area. Residents have also called for better lighting along neighborhood streets to deter crime.
