Couple robbed in Bibb apartment parking lot

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the gunmen who robbed the owners of New China Buffet just before midnight Sunday.

The couple were returning home to Northwood Apartments on Thomaston Road when two men with an automatic handgun approached and snatched the woman’s purse that contained the business proceeds and a credit card, according to sheriff’s office report.

Witnesses described the robbers as two black men in their early 20s. One was about 6 feet tall and wore dreadlocks while the other was about 5 feet 8 inches tall.

The men fled in an older model “boxy” white sedan, according to authorities. Anyone with information is asked to call Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68CRIME.
