Parking Garage Robber Sought

A woman is recovering from injuries she received during an armed robbery overnight, while Savannah-Chatham police are search for a suspect. Just before 2am this morning, a parking lot security attendant at the Bryan Street garage was making her rounds when she saw a group of people from Wisconsin on the fourth floor. A woman with the group was nursing a gash in her head.

She tells police, a man attacked her as she and her friends were getting ready to leave in the car. The victim says, the suspect had on a knit cap pulled over his face and pulled a gun on her. He demanded her money and took her pocketbook, then threw her down on the floor of the garage where she injured her head.

The suspect was last seen running down the stairs. The victim was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment. The suspect left the knit cap and his overcoat at the scene. Forensics experts will try to identify the suspect from those items and video taken during the attack.
