On Tuesday, June 24, 2008 , at approximately 8:21 a.m. , two black males, one armed with a revolver handgun, the other armed with an SKS type assault rifle, entered the Atlanta Federal Credit Union, located at 3075 Sylvan Road , Atlanta , GA ( East Point ) and attempted an armed robbery.
The bank employees retreated further into the bank and the robbers departed without having obtained any money.
The robbers, described as black males in their early to late 20’s and with slender builds, were both wearing “do rag” style masks and were observed departing the bank in a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer. This vehicle was later recovered by law enforcement about a mile and a half away from the bank ( East Washington Ave./Blunt Street area). This vehicle was reported stolen from the Lithonia, Georgia area and is currently being processed by crime scene investigators.
Anyone with information is requested to contact the Atlanta office FBI at tel. (404) 679-9000.
