Police: Man targeted at Lenox Square before armed robbery, beating

- Atlanta Police said one man is in jail while two others remain on the run after an armed robbery and assault Tuesday in Buckhead.

Investigators said Antonio Isom II, 21, and two other men approached a man inside Lenox Square around 4 p.m. The man was inside the mall trying to sell his cellphones at a kiosk, according to the incident report. The man told officers the trio offered to buy the phones from him but he would have to meet them at 3200 Lenox Road to make the exchange. The man agreed. Once at the location, the trio robbed him at gunpoint and hit him in the head with a gun causing a cut on his forehead, FOX 5 News has learned.

APD Officer Stephanie Brown spoke with FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell about the crime. Brown said Isom, the driver, drove away and the other two men got out of the car and ran. Soon after, officers arrested Isom on Armour Drive.

FOX 5 News has learned Isom faces several charges including armed robbery, aggravated assault and ten counts of theft by taking.

If you have any information that can help police track down the other two, you're asked to call Atlanta Police.
