(Peachtree Corners, Georgia) Gwinnett Police responded to a report of a carjacking at 7044 Jimmy Carter Blvd at about 2:10am this morning (1/31/18). Officers determined the call was not a carjacking, but was an armed robbery during which the victim’s car was taken. The male victim told officers he was staying in a hotel room at the Crossland Economy Studios (7049 Jimmy Carter Blvd) with a female friend. An unknown male suspect knocked on the door at around 2:00am and produced a handgun. He demanded the victims’ property and removed the female victim from the room at gunpoint. The suspect left with the female victim in the male victim’s vehicle. The male victim ran to the nearby Waffle House and called police.
