Police in Gwinnett County need your help finding a man they say asked for a job, then assaulted and tried to rob employees.

Officials said at around 3 p.m. on March 6, the suspect walked into a laundromat on the 860 block of Indian Trail Road in unincorporated Norcross.

The suspect asked an employee about getting a job, but after he was told they are not hiring, police say he "became irritated."

Officials say the man then tried to enter the "employees-only" area of the laundromat, pushed multiple employees, and grabbed a bowl filled with coins.

The employees were able to get the money back, but the suspect fled before they could call police.

Investigators described the man as being 16 to 19 years old, around 5-feet-6-inches-tall, with black hair. He was wearing a light-beige North Face sweatshirt, blue jeans, black shoes, and was carrying a bookbag with a black and white design.

If you have any information on the case, please call Gwinnett County detectives at 770-513-5300 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
