ATLANTA, Ga. -

A female city of Atlanta worker was attacked while on the job.

Two male thieves surprised her from behind and knocked her down. They were after a leaf blower.

The woman is part of a three-person landscaping crew.

The incident happened in northwest Atlanta on Harwell road where the employees had just begun their clean-up.

The female employee had gotten a fair distance away from her two male co-workers. They had protective head gear on and could not hear her screams.

The robbers grabbed the yard tool and jumped into a getaway car.

While it is rare, city officials say similar incidents have happened.
