Conyers police are looking for a suspect who robbed a man at gunpoint early Saturday morning but may have intended to hit another person. 

Shortly before 2 a.m., a black male suspect with a black handgun approached a 20-year-old man and a woman as they were walking to their car parked near apartments on Millcrest Walk, off of Irwin Bridge Road. The suspect was described as about 5-feet 8 inches tall, wearing a black hat, jeans, and a black shirt with a white logo on the right side that was pulled up over his face.

According to police reports, the 20-year-old man was opening his car door when the suspect approached from behind demanded his money. The victim tossed his wallet behind him.

The supsect then asked the victim if he was "Emillo" and asked if he had "killed his homeboy 'Sergio' last week," according to incident reports.

The victim said he was not, told him his name, and told him to check his ID.

The suspect then reportedly told the victim, "Okay, I'm leaving your wallet on the black car and I'm going about my business. Tell Emillo I'm looking for him."

The suspect reportedly took cash and the victim's driver's license from the wallet and walked around the front of the apartments.

The male and female victim rushed back to the apartment they had come from and called police.

Conyers police tried to find an available K-9 unit from Rockdale County or Newton County Sheriff's Office but none were available.

Footprints from the area went to the left side of the apartments and ended at the wood line.
