Man robbed at work on Monday morning

By Daniel Silliman


William Xavier Oliver told police he was robbed of $17,000 on Monday morning.

Oliver, the 26-year-old manager of United Recycling, showed up to work at about 10 a.m., with $17,000 in cash in a bag in the driver's seat. He tried to pull into the driveway of 7468 Jonesboro Road, Suite 199, but said he was stopped at the gate by a man with a gun.

The unknown man was described to Clayton County police officers as a black male, about six-foot-two, with a short, salt-and-pepper-colored Afro and an olive green, camouflage shirt.

According to the police report, and the victim's account, Oliver was told he couldn't come onto the property. Oliver protested that he was the manager, and the man shot Oliver's car. The bullet went out the passenger's side of the car, and Oliver ran away, and hid behind a tree.

Oliver reported that the man left in a dark green truck. "Mr. Oliver advised," the police report reveals, "that the suspect must have retrieved the bag which contained $17,000 from the passenger side of his vehicle. The suspect got into the truck and they were last seen traveling [south bound] on Jonesboro Road."

It was not immediately clear why the manager of United Recycling was carrying $17,000, and how anyone might have known that.

The case was turned over to Detective Thomas Martin for further investigation. Anyone with any information about the alleged armed robbery, is asked to call Martin at (770) 477-3635.

Police: Woman stabbed boyfriend, apologized at sight of blood

Tonya Crook allegedly stabbed her boyfriend in the hand and then ran outside crying, Clayton County police said.

When officers arrived, the 31-year-old woman was outside the apartment at 4008 Popular Pointe Drive, in College Park, and 41-year-old Leroy Eugene Linkbarger was inside, bleeding.

"The victim was sitting on the toilet with no clothes on and he was sweating," Officer P.E. Amos reported. "I noticed the right hand of the victim was badly bleeding and dripping blood and the victim was ... very, very weak."

Linkbarger reported the couple was arguing in the bedroom and then Crook went to the kitchen, at about 11:30 p.m., Saturday. Crook allegedly threw a spatula and then grabbed a large, kitchen knife from a drawer and started to shout, "I'm going to kill you," Linkbarger told police.

The 41-year-old man was cut between the thumb and the forefinger of his right hand. He said Crooks threw the knife into the sink, when she saw blood, and ran outside crying. When police put her in the back of the patrol car, she was yelling that she was sorry and didn't mean to hurt Linkbarger, Amos reported.

Crook was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault.

Man carjacked at red light

A 23-year-old Atlanta man was reportedly so shaken from being carjacked, he couldn't really tell police anything.

According to the Clayton County police report, filed by Officer R. Boisis, Aaron Ali Mustifa was at the corner of Ga. Highway 314 and Creel Road, at about 12:45 a.m. on Sunday, when it happened. He was sitting at a red light in his silver, 2008 Dodge Ram 1500, when a black male with a black gun said, "Give me the truck," and he realized a handgun was pointed at his head.

The carjacker was reportedly wearing a white T-shirt and baggy, black jeans, but Mustifa couldn't give much more detail. He could not estimate the value of the vehicle, or say what he'd paid for it, Boisis reported.

Anyone with information about the incident, is asked to call the police tip line at (770) 473-5400.

Two teens shot by man with two guns, dread locks

Two teens and a four-door Nissan Maxima were shot up at Belmont Landing Apartments outside Riverdale, Clayton County police said.

Darion Mikkela Johnson, 17, and a juvenile were in the car, leaving the apartment complex at 12:45 a.m., Sunday, when a man with dread locks and two guns got out of an SUV and started shooting, the teens told police, according to the report filed by officers J. Foy and B. Bell.

The unknown man allegedly fired nine or 10 times, leaving the glass shattered out of both of the driver-side windows and the passenger-side front window. The 17-year-old had a gunshot wound to the left side of his abdomen and the juvenile, a wound in his left shoulder.

The two teens drove themselves to Clayton County fire station No. 11, on Ga. Highway 85, and police met them there.

The circumstances surround the shooting were not clear, though the two teens said they were planning to go to an 18-year-old's birthday party in a hotel in Decatur, and they later went to a Forest Park party for a girl known as "Parris."

Police believe the shooter may have also been wounded, at the apartment complex, because they found blood on the ground, 15-yards from where the Nissan's glass was scattered over four parking spaces.

Anyone with information about the incident, is asked to call the police tip line at (770) 473-5400.
