Inside Police Reports: Armed Robbery at Car Wash
A car wash employee said a man with a gun demanded his wallet; he got less than $10 in cash.
An employee at Regional Car Wash on Harbins road was held up by an armed man last week, taking the dollar bills the man had in his pocket.
The maintenance and repair man at Regional was cleaning a car wash bay on Saturday, Sept. 15, when he heard a gun being "racked" behind him. He turned to see a white male in his mid-20's with a multi-colored bandana covering his face, according to a Lilburn Police Department report.
The suspect pointed a large, black, semi-automatic handgun at the victim and demanded the victim's wallet. When the victim said he didn't have one, the suspect told him to empty out his pockets. The victim handed the suspect between six and 10 single dollar bills.
"I'm sorry and I'm not gonna hurt you but my mom is dying," the suspect was reported as saying. He walked away toward Harbins Road.
Police responding to the call were not able to locate anyone matching the description of the suspect. No prints were lifted.
The suspect is a white or light-skinned male in his mid-20s. He was wearing a red, white and blue ball cap, a multi-colored bandana around his face, a black T-shirt and blue jeans.
