A violent robbing crew targeting Asian-owned businesses in metro Atlanta has struck again, according to the FBI's Atlanta Field Office. This marks the tenth time the group has struck in just over a month.
Special Agent in Charge David LeValley of the FBI Atlanta Field Office says the Bureau is looking for help from the public in finding the suspects involved in the violent crimes.
The tenth incident happened last Friday, November 10, at about 8:52 p.m., at New You Massage in the 700 block of Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell. Three black men entered the business, initially acting like customers. One of the men asked for a massage.
When an employee told the man he would have to pay first, the three men pulled out handguns and demanded money. One of the suspects went through the drawers in the front desk, while the others stole wallets, cell phones and purses from employees and customers.
The suspects hit several of the employees and a customer in the head with their handguns. After that, the suspects left the business, got into a red four-door sedan and drove away.
