ATLANTA — Police are stepping up security after a string of armed robberies in midtown Atlanta.

On Thursday, Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri talked to a victim who fought back.

Residents in midtown have experienced five robberies in five days. One of the victims said he was walking on Sixth Street near Juniper Street, heading to his car when two young men pointed guns at him. That was just moments after the same men robbed someone else, police said.

“These people knew exactly what they were doing,” said the victim who spoke to Viteri.

He didn't want to appear on camera and asked Channel 2 Action News to call him by his last name, Ali. He said he was leaving dinner with friends just after midnight early Tuesday when he heard two men running behind him on Sixth Street.

“I thought they were going to keep running past me. When they didn't run past me, I turned around, and I just see two barrels of two weapons staring at my head,” said Ali, an Army veteran who served in Iraq.
