ATLANTA - Authorities said a man took a bullet over his expensive wristwatch. The thief wanted his Rolex.
The violent encounter happened last Thursday late in the afternoon and the circumstances were unusual. The victim told police he remembered seeing a motorcyclist pull into a parking deck right behind him. It was a busy time just before five in the evening.
After he parked, the man walked into the building, and did not come back out until approximately two hours later, headed to his car.
The motorcyclist, who apparently had waited, came up with a gun and demanded the watch.
There was a struggle. The biker, whose helmet shielded his face, shot the man in the leg, grabbed the Rolex and rode off on his motorcycle.
Investigators hope images from the parking deck will remind someone of the timing of the incident and lead to information.
