LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga -- Police are searching for a suspect with a distinctive '333' tattoo on his face after he attempted to rob a convenience store at gunpoint.
The incident occurred around 7 a.m. on Saturday, December 16, at the QuikTrip located on 1055 Old Peachtree Road in unincorporated Lawrenceville.
A light-skinned Hispanic or white male approached the attendants and told them that he was robbing the store and needed $300. The employees told the suspect that they didn’t have access to any cash, prompting the suspect to leave without any money.
The employees described him as being approximately 5'10", about 150 lbs., dark colored hoodie, dark colored pants, wearing a grey colored scarf or bandana around his neck, brown back pack, and having a “333” tattoo below his right eye.
