Decatur police said they're investigating two armed robberies that occurred on two consecutive days last month.
The first robbery happened about 9:15 p.m. Sept. 22 outside Decatur CD at 356 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. An employee closed up the store and walked into a parking lot when he was accosted by three males who looked to be between 15 and 18 years old.
One held a gun "that did not look real." They demanded money and the employee handed over his wallet containing $3 and his iPhone. The men returned the wallet.
The men jumped a rear fence and could not be located during a police search. They were described as black with no facial hair. One wore a black hoodie.
The second robbery took place about 4:25 p.m. Sept. 23 in the 100 block of Avery Street. A Decatur High student said he was walking home when a man came from the rear of Avery Glen Apartments with a 6-inch, combat-style knife.
The man told the student "empty your pockets" and the student handed over his wallet that held about $50. The man fled north on Avery Street towards East College Avenue.
The suspect was described as a light-skinned black male, about 6-foot-3 and 160 pounds with shoulder-length dreadlocks. He was wearing a red baseball cap, red shirt with stripes and black pants.
