Police investigating string of robberies in midtown Atlanta and Buckhead areas


ATLANTA – Police are investigating six robberies in the midtown Atlanta and Buckhead areas. 

Investigators said all the carjackings happened between 5-7 a.m. each time.

“I got out of my car to two men with a gun in my face telling me to get on the ground, and they took my car,” the victim said. “I live in a cul-de-sac in a quiet neighborhood where you expect nothing like this to happen.”

In the surveillance video Channel 2 obtained from Wednesday morning, a silver Infiniti sedan is seen following the victim from the Ansley Mall area.


The robbers in the sedan made it all the way to the victim’s home and later carjacked the man at gunpoint.

Just 10 minutes earlier the same morning and two miles away on Piedmont Avenue,
police said a man in a silver car robbed a woman in front of her apartment.

“These types of crimes are simply unacceptable in the city of Atlanta,” said Deputy Chief Jeffrey Glazier, Atlanta Police Department.

Altogether, police said there have been four carjackings in the area since Monday morning. There have been six similar robberies across midtown Atlanta.

“I can’t emphasize enough to be aware of your surroundings,” the victim said.
