Atlanta Police are asking for the publics help identifying three men seen in surveillance video stealing a vehicle.

In surveillance video police said the three men hid behind a dumpster at the Chevron gas station on Northside Drive before attacking Corina Medina and her brother.  

“It’s kind of fearful, just scared,” said Corina Medina after watching the surveillance video for the first time.

Medina said she and her brother, who moved to Georgia about a week ago, were grabbing coffee at the gas station before heading into work at around 5:30 Tuesday morning.  Medina said as they were getting into their grey 2014 GMC Sierra pickup truck with an Arizona tag, the armed men, approached them.

“My brother is like watch out watch out and all of a sudden I see him get tossed to the side and he is like face down,” said Medina. “My brother is just like Corina run.” 

Atlanta Police said the crooks took off with the trcuk.  Medina and her brother are grateful to be ok.

Less than two weeks ago at the same gas station, officers said a man took off in a woman's Range Rover, dragging the victim in the process.

Atlanta Police said they do not want people to be scared, but advise folks not to leave their keys in the car while pumping gas.

“If you're going into the store even for a minute, turn off your car, take your keys with you,” said Officer Lukasz Sajdak with the Atlanta Police Department, adding that people also need to be aware of their surroundings.

Investigators ask anyone with information to call 911 or Crime Stoppers.
