• FBI desperate to find violent group targeting Asian businesses

    By: Richard Elliot


    ATLANTA - The FBI is desperate to find several men targeting Asian-owned or operated businesses before they strike victim No. 11.

    “They’re going to continue,” FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett told Channel 2 Action News. “They’re going to continue to hurt people.”

    Emmett said the crew has hit 10 business across Metro Atlanta in the past month.

    The latest one happened Friday at the New You Massage Spa along Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell.


    According to Emmett, the criminal crew strikes every three to five days, so law enforcement officials are worried the men could be preparing to strike again very soon.

    Surveillance video in at least two of the robberies shows the men becoming dangerously violent.
    In one Doraville restaurant, the video shows one man shooting two employees.

    In video recorded at the Roswell spa, the robbers are seen kicking and pistol-whipping employees.

    “These are very dangerous individuals,” Emmett said. “They come in armed. They fire weapons. They have no consideration for other people.”

    Emmett said the men were last seen driving a red or maroon 2004-2008 Pontiac Grand Prix.

    Agents hope someone will recognize the men from the surveillance videos and call police.
