A North Druid Hills man was robbed while going to get the mail outside his apartment Jan. 8, DeKalb County police said.
The 41-year-old victim was walking in front of the apartment complex at 2300 Druid Oaks Dr. at about 7:40pm, the police report said. A suspect carrying a black, semiautomatic handgun approached him from behind and said, "Gimme what you got."
The victim emptied his pockets, including a cell phone and his keys, and the suspect patted him down to make sure there was nothing else. The suspect hopped into the passenger side of a red minivan waiting nearby and drove toward the complex's exit, the report said.
The victim's Samsung cell phone was valued at about $100.
