CONYERS -- A resident of The Village at Almand Creek apartments on Parker Road told the Conyers Police Department Wednesday that he was held at gunpoint and robbed of a 40-inch LCD TV.
Police were called to the apartment complex at about 2:45 p.m. where the 26-year-old male victim said a black man robbed him of a Toshiba TV. The suspect was described as 20 to 21 years of age, 5 feet, 9 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with an average build and a beard and mustache. The suspect reportedly left the apartment complex in a mid-1990s burgundy Toyota Camry or Corolla with faded paint on the hood. The car was driven by a black female wearing sunglasses, according to the report.
The victim told police that he purchased the TV on QVC for $500 and was selling it for $300. He said he made arrangements with a coworker to sell the TV to the suspect and did not know if the coworker was involved in the robbery.
The victim said he loaded the TV into the back of the suspect's car and was given $100. When the victim asked for the rest of the money, the suspect reportedly pulled a black semiautomatic handgun, racked the slide and pointed it at the victim. The victim said he froze and the suspect and driver of the car left the complex.
The victim told police he did not have a name for the suspect but did have a phone number he used to call him and set up the meeting to sell the TV. The victim also reportedly said he did not want to follow through with the incident report if he could get his money or TV back.
