Thief Robs Second Arbor Hills Resident at Gunpoint This Month

The last robbery at the apartment complex occurred Jan. 8. The most recent happened Jan. 13.

Another resident was robbed at gunpoint Jan. 13 – the second armed robbery at the North Druid Hills complex this month, DeKalb County police said.

The 18-year-old victim left his apartment in Building 19 to get his mail at 1911 Druid Oaks Dr. at about 11:25pm, the police report said. As he approached his mailbox, he saw a man standing next to an older, dark green Toyota Camry. While he was retrieving his mail, the suspect moved toward him, pointing a black handgun at him.

The robber asked him what he had, searched his pockets and told him to empty his pockets, the report said. The victim only had his cell phone, which he handed to suspect. The suspect returned to his vehicle driven by another suspect, and they headed toward the complex's entrance.

The gun-wielding suspect was described as a black male about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 pounds, wearing a black mask, a black hooded jacket and white gym shorts. There was no description for the second suspect, but a separate witness told police he saw five teenaged males in the Camry near Building 19. The report did not say when that sighting occurred, however.

An Arbor Hills resident was also . The thieves, which rode in a red minivan, were only able to make off with a cell phone.
