CONYERS, Ga. — Authorities are searching for a suspect wanted for an armed robbery at a Conyers apartment complex last week. A 13-year-old girl is already in custody in connection to the incident.

Calvin Smith, 20, is wanted by the Conyers Police Department for the alleged May 24 incident at the Briar Creek Apartments. Police said no one was hurt during the crime.

According to a police report from the Conyers Police Department, Smith, the young teen and another unknown suspect lured the victim to an apartment complex before robbing him. 

The report says the victim flagged down an officer around 10:30 p.m. to report that he had been robbed 20 minutes earlier by the three suspects. He was only wearing a shirt and a towel around his waist at the time.

According to the victim, he met the 13-year-old two days before when he went to a business to buy tacos. He reportedly told police she approached him in the parking lot and asked him for $100 to have sex. He told her no, but said when he went back to the same place, she asked again. The victim told police he asked the 13-year-old where her parents were and then asked if she "had a problem being with an older man," to which she reportedly replied, "no."

This time, though, he agreed to the request, the report says. 

The report says the 13-year-old offered to drive the victim to an apartment complex; he was hesitant at first because she appeared young, but agreed.

According to the report, the teen told the man to wait in the car while she went up to the apartment. She returned and the two went upstairs. 

When inside, the report says the teen directed the man to head all the way to the back of the apartment, where the bathroom was and take off his clothes. The victim told police he waited several minutes, but instead of the teen, the victim told said two armed men returned and pointed a gun at him.

The victim reported the men demanded he take off his shoes, pants, took the $100 bill and demanded more money, but he told them he didn't have any more. They then took his keys and ran off to rummage in his car - making off with his cell phone, his green card, a $400 check and a cell phone.

The victim said, once it was clear, he went outside and asked people in the parking lot for help, but they would not. He then got in his car to find a phone when he crossed paths with a police officer. 

The officer was able to track down the teen - who the report said had been known by police for runaway and domestic issues - and arrested her on charges of armed robbery.

A judge also issued a warrant for Smith and the other suspect for armed robbery. The victim was also arrested and charged with disorderly conduct (pandering).

Authorities still don't know Smith's current location, but hope the public may help in tracking him down. In addition, police said Smith has been in custody previously and is known to authorities.
