A man was allegedly robbed of $1,900 while driving on Mitchell Road, according to a Norcross Police report.
The strong-arm robbery occurred on Sept. 27 around 6:40 p.m. The man had trouble speaking English so his fiancee translated for him when speaking to police.
The 42-year-old man told police he was driving down Brookhollow Parkway when a black American sedan pulled up behind him. He pulled onto Mitchell Road, and the car passed him and stopped in front of him in the middle of the road. Two men then got out of the car and approached him. One of the men pulled him out of the car, ripping his shirt, while the other went inside his car and snatched $1,900 that was lying on the passenger seat.
The men then left in the black sedan, and the victim called his fiancee to help him report the crime to police.
When police asked him why he had $1,900 lying on the seat, he replied that he had taken $2,900 from an account. He had $1,900 in one pocket and $1,000 in another pocket. The wad of money became uncomfortable so he removed it from his pocket and put it on the seat next to him, he told police.
The man told police he had a business partner who wanted to get even with him, and he suspected him of hiring the men who robbed him.
The man told police he was now late for Doraville City Court that evening to pay a traffic ticket, and he did not have enough money for the ticket. Police ran a check on the man’s car and found that it did not have valid insurance. Police told the man he was not allowed to drive the car until it had valid insurance.
