A woman told Decatur police two men robbed her about 11:50 p.m. March 20 as she walked away from the East Lake Marta Station.
This is the fifth armed robbery of a woman in Decatur since Feb. 7. In all the incidents, the women were approached by two men, one holding a pistol. Nobody has been injured.
This is what the police report says:
The woman left the Marta station and was walking down East Lake Drive, near the intersection with Johnston Place, when two men walked past and doubled back to confront her.
One held a pistol, possibly a Glock, and said, "Give me everything you have." She handed over her purse and phone and the gunman pressed the pistol against her stomach and said, "Where is the money?"
She said the money was in the purse. The two males ran west on Johnston Place. She hear a car door slam and saw a mid-sized SUV going west on Johnson Place toward Wisteria Way.
The woman walked to a nearby house and called police. The purse contained a phone, about $25 in cash, a handheld gaming system, a driver's license and other small items.
She described both men as 22 to 30 years old and black with dark complexions. The one holding the gun was 6 foot to 6-foot-4 with a medium build and wearing a black doo-rag and a cream-colored hoodie with small patterns. The other man was 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-11 with a slender build and wearing a black hoodie with a large "R" on the side of the garment.
