Masked, serial robbers target victims at banks

ATLANTA -- Sandy Springs Police are looking for two men who have repeatedly attacked victims as they left a bank.

Police are investigating three different robberies that took place on Feb. 22, Feb. 26 and March 3. They all happened on or near Roswell Road.

In each case, police said the victims were basically stalked by the suspects. According to police, the suspects watched customers enter and leave the bank and, based on what they in their hands, followed them to a different location, where the robberies took place. 

"In all three of these cases, the victims had the red Bank of America bank bags leaving the locations and I guess those bags kind of stand out," said Sandy Springs Police Sgt. Ron Momon. "In two instances, the victims stopped at convenience stores and, after coming out of the convenience stores, were accosted in their vehicle."

On Tuesday night, officers posted surveillance video to the department Facebook page, showing a small silver car believed to be the suspects' getaway car.

The video also showed one of the suspects attacking a victim, forcing him to the ground as the victim tries to fight him off. 

All three male victims described the suspects' vehicle as a silver sedan. The suspects are described as two black men between 5'8" and 5'9" weighing around 170 pounds each. They wore dark clothing and their faces were covered. The victims also pointed to athletic shoes worn by one of the gunmen.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (5877). Tipsters can remain anonymous.
