TUCKER, GA – The Gwinnett Police Department need the public’s help to identify three or four men who beat, robbed and kidnapped a 25-year old Tucker man Aug. 19. A detective assigned to the Robbery Unit has been tasked with investigating the crime and trying to identify the suspects responsible.
At approximately 4:30 a.m., the victim returned home from visiting a local club. Three to four men attacked the victim in the parking lot of the Oakwood Vista Apartments on Coleville Circle in unincorporated Tucker. They hit him on the head causing his eyeglasses to break. They then punched and kicked him as he was falling to the ground. They eventually forced the victim into the back seat of his vehicle and drove to a gas station convenience store in Tucker. They demanded the victim’s PIN to his debit card.
Suspect #1 and Suspect #2 were captured on video entering the gas station. Suspect #1 goes to the ATM and withdraws money. He gets less than $200. The suspects eventually left the store and drove the victim back to his apartment complex.
