Police release video of man who wanted for taking vehicle from 2 victims

Police have released a video that investigators said shows a suspect wanted for entering a parked vehicle with people inside and demand they drove off with him.

Officers responded to the shopping center located at 815 Sidney Marcus Blvd NE on Oct. 9 after receiving a report of an auto theft. Atlanta police said the victims told officers the man entered the parked vehicle and told them to drive off. When they refused, the man turned violent, struggling with the victim, police said.
