Placeholder Image

A suspected serial robber is in jail after reportedly hitting a Conyers Subway restaurant and other places in DeKalb County.

On Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9:30 p.m. an armed man entered Subway, 1138 West Ave, and demanded money from the cash register. The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived, however, witness accounts, an observant patrol Corporal, and information from Special Operations officers led to the identification of the robber.

Witnesses inside Subway and in the parking lot described a black male in his 20s with several face tattoos who fled in a white station wagon with wood paneling.

A few hours after the robbery, Cpl. Jerahmy Williams observed a vehicle matching that description traveling on West Avenue. Cpl. Williams stopped the suspicious vehicle and the passenger fled the scene. The driver, Malcom Scott, was arrested for Driving while License Suspended and Possession of Drug Related Objects (glass pipe).

Scott could only advise that the passenger's name was "Lil D" and he has several face tattoos.

This information was relayed to Special Operations officers Chase Bagwell and Anthony Cook who both immediately recalled having recent contact with someone matching that description in the area. They identified Kyle Angelo Johnson and investigators discovered he was currently wanted out of DeKalb for several recent similar robberies. Warrants were secured for Armed Robbery, Aggravated Assault and Obstruction of Officers for the Conyers Subway case.

The night of Jan. 27, Newton County Sheriff's Office responded to a domestic call where they encountered Johnson and arrested him on Conyers warrants. Johnson is currently being held in the Rockdale County Jail without bond and has outstanding warrants for 12 robberies in DeKalb.
