The crime in the Northern suburbs of Atlanta has apparently taken a turn for the worse.

At approximately 11 pm on December 10th, deputies were dispatched to a Texaco gas station at 740 Atlanta Highway because of an armed robbery. According to a Forsyth County Sheriffs incident report a masked man with an automatic weapon went into the gas station and took money out of the cash register.

When deputies arrived the gas station employee related that she was sitting behind the counter when a man who appeared to be about 30 years old, came in wearing a light blue ski mask, a dark hoodie and blue jeans. He then pulled out an automatic weapon and demanded money from the cash register.

The frightened gas station employee then took out all the cash and placed it in a plastic bag. After she gave the robber the money he forced her to go into a storage room in the back of the building.

The armed robber then fled the scene on foot. The armed gunman is still at large.
