This suspect, whose image was captured on surveillance video, is accused of robbing at gunpoint the Dollar General located at 2310 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in southwest Atlanta and other dollar stores in the area.

The Atlanta Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect accused of robbing multiple dollar stores.

According to a news release, Feb. 8 at about 4:53 p.m., officers were sent to the Dollar General located at 2310 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in southwest Atlanta following a 911 call about a business robbery. When they got there, they spoke with the victim, who said a Black male wearing a dark blue or black Adidas track suit, black mask, black gloves and a black baseball cap robbed the store.

“The suspect approached the register armed with a firearm and told the store manager to give him all of the money out of all the registers,” the release stated. “After getting the money, the suspect fled the location.”
