Man robbed at gunpoint near MARTA station

Posted: Updated:

A local man is recovering from a serious scare after someone stuck a gun in his face near a busy MARTA station.

The man tells FOX 5 the terrifying encounter happened in broad daylight near the Inman Park station. He was heading to catch a train at 3:00 p.m. when he found himself face to face with a man holding a gun.

The incident happened on the victim’s birthday. He tells FOX 5 he’s lucky knowing the day of his birth could have easily been the day of his death.

Police were able to get a sketch made of the attacker and the victim says the attacker’s nose was unique, almost like it had been broken.

According to police, the attacker demanded everything from the MARTA rider, including his pants.

Atlanta police are advising the residents and people in that area to be mindful of their surroundings and if something doesn’t appear regular to contact police.
