The Athens-Clarke County and University of Georgia Police Departments are both soliciting help in identifying suspects in the two armed robbery incidents that occurred on Oct. 10.
In a press release, UGA attached security cameras images along with a description of the two suspects who robbed a man shortly before midnight on Thursday based on images and victim statements.
“Both suspects were described as black males in their early to mid-twenties, approximately six feet tall with slender builds. One of the males was described as having a dark complexion, short hair, short facial hair, wearing a dark blue or black long-sleeved t-shirt with a white design on the front, dark jeans with tears on the front and white shoes,” the release reads. “The second male was described as having a medium complexion, clean shaven, wearing a dark grey hoodie style zip up jacket, dark pants with a white stripe down the sides, grey beanie hat and white shoes.”
ACCPD, meanwhile, asked businesses and homeowners in the South Pope Street area to review any surveillance footage from Oct. 10, when a man was robbed on South Pope Street near Waddell Street shortly after noon.
According to an ACCPD press release, “the 21-year-old victim stated that he was robbed at gunpoint by a slim black male in his 20’s, approximately 6’ 1” tall, wearing dark clothing.”
The man robbed on Pope Street lost an iPhone, a wallet containing $40 cash, a debit card, driver’s license and student ID, a MacBook Pro, a backpack, Apple headphones, a phone charger, two Texas Instruments calculators, school supplies and a blazer jacket, according to the police report for the incident.
