ATLANTA – Police say a child could be part of a violent robbing crew targeting Midtown Atlanta.
One victim told police that he was walking on 9th Street when a dark colored car pulled up beside him. According to police, two men held the victim at gunpoint while a third person – who appeared to be a child -- punched him in the face and stole his cell phone. The boy attempted to get a wallet out of the victim's pocket, according to Officer Ralph Woolfork of the Atlanta Police Department.
Investigators said the suspects could face additional charges if they enlisted a child to take part in a crime.
Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call the Atlanta Police Department.
