CONYERS -- The Conyers Police Department has arrested a suspect in connection with a February armed robbery and assault at the Wells Fargo ATM on Dogwood Drive.
Quwan Kendrick, 21, of 420 Thomasville Blvd., Apt. 128, Atlanta, faces two counts of armed robbery and two counts of aggravated assault.
According to the city of Conyers, Kendrick and another suspect were driving a blue Subaru Tribeca on the night of the robbery. The Morgan County Sheriff's Office identified Kendrick as a suspect in the theft of that car in Morgan County on the same night as the armed robbery in Conyers.
Kendrick, who was on parole in an unrelated case, was arrested without incident on April 25 when he reported to his parole officer. At the time of his arrest, Kendrick was allegedly driving another stolen vehicle. Officials reportedly found a stolen handgun inside that car.
Additional investigation led to a search warrant being obtained for Kendrick's residence. Stolen property was allegedly recovered there in unrelated cases from the Atlanta Police Department. Conyers Police and the Morgan County Sheriff's Office are working to locate more stolen property and return the items to their rightful owners.
In the Conyers armed robbery, Kendrick allegedly held up a 39-year-old Covington man and 34-year-old Atlanta woman at the drive-though at Wells Fargo Bank at 1280 Dogwood Drive at about 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24. Kendrick reportedly was wearing a mask and pistol-whipped the male victim.
The male victim told police that when he pulled up to the ATM his car was too far away for him to reach the machine, so he had to get out of his car. The man said he withdrew $200 and then turned to see a man with a mask on his face running toward him. The victim said the suspect was pointing a gun at him and then hit him on top of the head with the pistol. The woman, who was seated in the passenger seat, told police the suspect then came to her window, yelled at her to give him everything, and reached in the car and grabbed her purse.
According to the Conyers Police Department, the getaway vehicle was driven by a second suspect described as a young black male, possibly in his teens.
The male victim was not seriously injured and did not require medical attention.
