The Atlanta Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect who robbed a man at gunpoint inside a Buckhead apartment building.

According to a news release, officers received a 911 call about a pedestrian robbery at The Huntley apartment building, 1000 Park Ave. NE. When they arrived, they met with a man who said he was robbed at gunpoint. According to a preliminary police report, the suspect threw the victim down and stole his Burberry backpack along with his credit/debit cards and $900 in cash.
