o WRONG HOUSE: At a residence on the 3400 block of Riverly Road Dec. 29 in Buckhead, a couple was sitting in their living room when they heard someone kicking in the front door. The suspect ran into the bedroom and then ran out. The husband dialed 911, retrieved his gun and followed the suspect outside before firing six rounds. The suspect fell on the ground, jumped up and left in an unknown vehicle. Jewelry was taken from the house: the victims’ ring, earrings, key chain and receipts were later found lying alongside the road.
o FAMILY MATTERS: At a residence on the 2400 block of Lowe Street in Buckhead Jan. 3, the victim told police her Sprint cell phone was taken by her sister’s mother-in-law. The victim said the suspect gave her a ride home, but stopped at the suspect’s own house first. That is when the phone went missing. When the victim called her own phone, the suspect answered and hung up immediately.
o GUNPLAY: At 1740 Springer St. in Buckhead Dec. 30, the victim approached a black male and black female who were seated inside a blue Infiniti parked in the middle of the road and asked why they were there. When the victim reached toward his back pocket to retrieve his phone to call police, the male inside the car thought the victim was getting a gun and so pulled his own firearm. The suspect pointed it at the victim and said, “If you’re pulling out a gun at me, I have one myself” before driving off.
o DRUGSTORE COWBOY: At the Walgreens at 6425 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs Jan. 2, a man came into the store and bought a few items. While checking out, he pulled a gun and robbed the clerk of an unspecified amount. The suspect left the store on foot. He was described as a white male, skinny, with a tattoo on the back of his neck.
