Atlanta man offered to give a couple a ride

Police in Atlanta are looking for two possible suspects in a robbery that happened Thursday morning.

Officers claimed the victim was exiting an after-hours bar on Metropolitan Parkway at 6 a.m. on May 25.

A man and a woman allegedly flagged down the victim.

The victim consented to give them a ride, and while inside the car, a guy grabbed the victim at gunpoint and told him to drive to an ATM and withdraw money, according to the Atlanta Police Department.

The suspects then forced the victim to drive to Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard, where they were both dropped off, according to officials.

Authorities did not specify whether or not the victim knew the accused.

Anyone with knowledge can make an anonymous tip to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-8477 or online.

Tipsters do not need to provide their names or other identifying information in order to be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000 for the culprits’ arrest and indictment.
