Marietta police arrested 17-year-old Lavontay Edwards on Oct. 17 after they say he robbed a man at gunpoint. Edwards is accused of approaching the victim from behind while holding a silver pistol in his hand, only to take the $10 the victim had in his pockets. According to the warrant, Edwards then fled the scene but was identified by the victim who at the time was “in fear of his life,” the warrant states.
Edwards is being held in the Cobb County jail without bond.
