CONYERS - The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office has issued a Be On The Lookout (BOLO) for a suspect who robbed the Starship Enterprises of Conyers on Ga. Highway 138 at gunpoint and assaulted the employees.

According to a news release, the suspect entered the adult entertainment store about 9:20 p.m. on March 11 and held both employees at gunpoint. The suspect “pistol whipped” both employees and forced them to go into the restroom and strip off their clothes.

The suspect was confronted by customers entering the store and fled on foot. The employees were treated for their injuries but were not seriously hurt.

Surveillance video shows the suspect wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and sweatpants, with black, grey and blue gloves, and carrying what appears to be a semi-automatic handgun. The suspect kept his face down and away from the surveillance camera.
