Police are investigating a robbery by "sudden snatching and gun discharge at Savannah Mall’s food court on March 3."
Metro responded to the mall, located on the 14000 block of Abercorn Street, at about 1:54 p.m. where they made contact with Nicholas Rivera, 28. "Rivera was reportedly robbed while attempting to sell a laptop computer he advertised on Craig’s List to the suspect posing as a customer. The suspect reportedly grabbed the laptop, before running out of the food court with Rivera trailing behind him."
Once outside, Rivera fired one warning shot into the air. No injuries were reported. Investigators believe Rivera continued following the suspect until the suspect entered a burgundy sedan with at least three other occupants. The sedan fled toward Highway 204.
The robbery suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion, possibly in his late teens to early 20s. The suspect was clean-shaven with his hair styled in twists or a short afro. During the incident he wore a black jacket and blue jeans.
No charges have been filed at this time.
