The man continued on his way until he felt a gun on the back of his head and a male voice demanding, “Don’t turn around. Give me your money and credit cards.” The victim was also asked to give the robber the PIN number to his ATM card.  The suspects then fled, leaving the victim uninjured.

About 20 minutes later, a man at the same Publix reported seeing a pair with their baby in tow inquiring about the location of an ATM in the store.

On Sunday afternoon, a 68-year-old man and a friend were also walking away from the same Buckhead supermarket when they were robbed by the same baby-toting bandits.

A surveillance camera captured the alleged assailants with their baby in a stroller as they sat smoking cigarettes at a table in front of the Publix supermarket in question. The first robbery occurred after the image was taken. The camera also caught the pair committing several other robberies in the area.

Anyone with information about the couple’s identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-877-TIPS. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
