SAVANNAH, GA (March 9, 2015): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying and locating two males who appeared to randomly attacked pedestrians in two incidents in downtown Savannah Sunday.
In each incident, the males drove up to pedestrians in a silver, four-door vehicle and the passenger exited the vehicle, attacked a pedestrian and reentered the vehicle before it drove away.
In the first incident, two Jersey City, NJ, men were walking at East Congress and Habersham streets about 7:13 p.m. when the car – possibly a Cadillac DeVille — stopped beside them; the passenger exited and punched a 35-year-old victim several times in the face. Other witnesses confirmed the report. And at least one was captured on a video camera.
At 8:01 p.m., a 21-year-old woman from South Carolina who is attending college in Savannah reported she was walking with a male when the car stopped near them and she was punched and knocked down by the passenger.
He is described as a black male, about 6-0 with a slender to medium body style, short hair and light complexion with a broad nose. The driver was described only as a tall black male.
Downtown Precinct detectives continue to investigate the attacks and search for the suspects and the vehicle. They would like to talk to the driver and/or occupants of a dark SUV or minivan that stopped to help at the second incident.
Anyone with information on the vehicle or the suspects is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
