The Gwinnett County Police Department Robbery Unit needs your help identifying a man who is targeting a community in unincorporated Snellville. 

According to police, on three of these occasions, a black male dressed in dark clothing and armed with a handgun robbed food delivery drivers.

Police say the suspect would call and make a food order. He then scheduled a delivery for homes on Wellington Hills Way, Wellington Hills Lane, and King Richard Court. All these homes are in the same neighborhood. The suspect would meet the delivery driver outside after they arrived and once the driver pulled up, he would pull out a gun and demand their cash, wallet, and cell phones. One delivery driver was assaulted by the suspect when he didn’t have any cash to give him.

On Sunday, Dec. 2,  police say the suspect went to a home in the same neighborhood and knocked on the door. When the resident of the home answered, the suspect barged inside pushing the 73-year old woman and closing the door behind him. Police say the suspect immediately began demanding money. When the elderly woman said that she didn’t have much money, the suspect demanded that the woman perform a sex act on him. When she declined, he placed the gun to her head and asked if she wanted to die and then performed the sexual act upon himself.

According to a police statement, when he was finished, he rummaged through the woman’s purse and stole what little cash she had. When the victim started crying, he gave her a tissue.

Police described the suspect as a black male with a light complexion. He is about 5-foot-8 to 6 feet tall and wears dark clothing. In all four of these incidents, he has been armed with a handgun. 

The neighborhood where all these crimes occurred is off Bethany Church Road near Stone Mountain Highway, also known as Highway 78.
