SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. - Sandy Springs police are trying to find the two men responsible for the early-morning gunpoint robbery of a woman at the Park at Dunwoody apartments.

"Finally the guy with the gun he's like 'shut up! Shut up!' and I just kept going," explained Joy Keishian.

She screamed, flailed and fought the two men. Keishian said she ran into the two when she walked out to her parked car around 6:30 a.m. Friday and they appeared nonthreatening.

"And then the next thing I know, they were on me. They didn't hit me or hurt me or anything, but they were reaching over because my laptop was on the other seat there," Keishian said.

Her work laptop and lunch bag were all the robbers took.

"I didn't know if I was going to be raped or what was happening. I just would not stop fighting," Keishian said.

Neighbor Zack Bustami was shocked to hear of the crime in what he calls a "family neighborhood."

"More power to her for fighting back and I'm glad she's safe. Me? Probably would've given them everything I have without fighting. I can replace the stuff, but I can't replace me," Bustami said.

Captain Steve Rose with Sandy Springs Police Department said a witness saw an orange or red Chevrolet Cruze looking suspicious and leaving the neighborhood this morning. They also recovered a green ball cap and white T-shirt that the suspects were described to be wearing.

"We actually found both of those items nearby on Northridge Road," Rose explained. "So what happened is we think they got into this car, this orange or red Chevy Cruze and they left the area and when they left the area they changed their clothes."

Sandy Springs police want to hear from you if you see anything suspicious or know the suspects involved in the armed robbery.
