Carjacking in Home Grown Parking Lot

Victim was texting in her car when gunmen pounced, pushed and struck her.

Atlanta police are looking for four men who robbed a woman late Tuesday night in the parking lot of the restaurant on Memorial Drive.

The victim told police she was parked in the restaurant's lot at the corner of Memorial and Gibson Street SE at about 10 p.m. She said was in the middle of texting when a van suddenly pulled up alongside her 2005 black Honda Civic (license plate No. BIN6013).

Four men in their late teens jumped out of the van. One of them, armed with a silver handgun, called her derogatory name, pushed and hit her.

He snatched her mobile phone and car keys.

The victim said it was too dark to get good descriptions of her assailants, but a witness who heard the woman's screams, told police he saw one of the men get into her Honda and that the others followed in a late-model maroon-colored Dodge Caravan. They were last seen heading west on Memorial Drive.

I am a female wearing a wedding ring, does that mean I am "asking" for it? A crime is a crime! Catch them and get them off of the streets! Why are people so quick to not blame the actual criminal?!?!?

Of the criminal is in the wrong but people have to be aware. Sadly most people are in their own little world and very unaware.
