CONYERS -- An employee of a West Avenue car title finance office was robbed of the business' bank deposit bag Monday morning after she was physically accosted in the parking lot.

The robbery suspect was described as a medium complexion black male of medium build, around 5 feet, 11 inches tall. The suspect was described as wearing a long-sleeved green jacket, dark pants, sun glasses and dark hat, Dunn said.
