UPDATED: Armed Holdup in Glenwood Park

Incident raise calls from parents to be aware and careful.

It's been quite a busy week crimewise, with carjackings, assaults and armed robberies in our East Atlanta Patch neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, the criminals are taking advantage of any and every opportunity.

The Grant Park Parents Network issued warning regarding an incident in Glenwood Park Monday. Three teens robbed a man near the pond in the park area of the Glenwood Park neighborhood.

Following the brazen, noontime robbery, the teens escaped in a tan-colored car with the victim's wallet and mobile phone. The victim was unharmed.

Bottom line: be aware of anyone and every around you.

Separately, GPPN posted an alert regarding what may have been an armed incident in Cabbagetown Park on Tuesday. But Sam Gris, public safety chairman of the Cabbagetown Neighborhood Improvement Association, said the incident appeared suspicious, but there was no armed robbery.

I think JB is under the false notion that no harm will come if you just give them what they want.
