Officer’s Narrative:
[Please note: The following is a direct transcription from the officer’s narrative report. We do not fix any spelling or grammatical errors. Any changes made by our staff are placed inside brackets. Some errors may exist.]

I (Ptl. Moses) was dispatched to [2100 BLOCK] Techwood Dr. in reference to a suspicious person knocking on doors.

Upon arrival a tall black male with dreads and a black shirt matching the description in the call notes approached my patrol vehicle. The man identified himself as [VICTIM #1]. [VICTIM #1] stated he was meeting up with a woman named “Zya” (later identified as Desire Harris) and he planned on hanging out with her to see where things lead.

[VICTIM #1] stated he drove his Audi A3 (GA Tag #[REDACTED]) to [1100 BLOCK] Auburn Dr. to meet up with Harris. [VICTIM #1] stated Harris let him into the house, he sat down on the couch and then Harris walked outside of the house. [VICTIM #1] stated two men rushed inside of the house pointing black guns in his face. [VICTIM #1] stated one of the men that he recognized as Harris’ child’s father began hitting him in the face with a frying pan. [VICTIM #1] stated the men started to take things out of his pockets to include his car keys, an iPhone, and $1,000 in cash.

[VICTIM #1] stated he ran out of the house in fear and the two men followed out behind him stating that they would shoot him if he continued to run. [VICTIM #1] stated he told them they were going to have to shoot him because he was not going to stop. [VICTIM #1] stated he ran to multiple houses knocking on the doors trying to get someone to call the police because the phone that he still had was dead. [VICTIM #1] stated that he believed the two men were going to steal his car. [VICTIM #1] stated he recognized the two men as “Purp Gang” members and would easily be able to identify them if he saw them. [VICTIM #1] stated he did not expect to be setup by Harris.

I took [VICTIM #1] back to the incident location and was able to find his vehicle still in the driveway. [VICTIM #1] was able to find his car keys inside of the vehicle. I took pictures of [VICTIM #1]’s injuries (swollen and lacerated left eyebrow, laceration on the right eyebrow, and a laceration under the left eye), uploaded them onto a disc, and logged them into evidence locker #02. This incident was recorded on my body worn camera. Sgt. Diaz was notified and responded to the scene due to the nature of the call.

This case has been forwarded to investigations.
