Police believe that two armed robberies and a carjacking Feb. 11 in Buckhead and the Westside were committed by the same person. 

According to the Atlanta Police Department, the first incident happened around 7:15 p.m. at the AMLI Piedmont Heights apartment complex in Buckhead’s Lindbergh neighborhood. The victim was walking toward her parked car when she was approached by a male brandishing a handgun. The robber demanded the keys to the car, a 2019 Chevrolet Impala, and then fled the scene in the vehicle.

The second incident happened at around 11:45 p.m. on the Westside. According to APD, the victim used an ATM at 1145 Centre St., then entered an apartment building. A male pointed a handgun at her and demanded her money. The robber then fled the area in a silver Buick, the model of which was not specified by APD.

APD did not issue a physical description of the suspect, but did provide a photo, apparently taken from a security camera at an unspecified location. The person in the photo is wearing a dark cap, a white face mask, a dark hooded sweatshirt with a Vans clothing logo, ripped jeans or pants, and sneakers.

Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta is offering a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of a suspect. Anyone with information can call 404-577-8477 or see the Crime Stoppers website.
