Police release sketch of armed robbery suspect

By Bryan Pirkle Reporter
CUMMING - The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of one of the suspects in an attempted armed robbery that took place in Cumming on Tuesday.

The image depicts a blonde white female, who, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, reportedly knocked on the door of a Tamiami Trail home around 3 p.m. claiming to be selling children's Bibles.

Upon answering the door, the female victim says the woman and several additional suspects forcibly made their way into the home.

While the suspect's attempts at carrying out an armed robbery were unsuccessful, all involved fled the home before Forsyth County officers arrived at the scene.

The female suspect is described as white, approximately 5' 02" tall, with crystal blue eyes and shoulder-length blonde hair. She was said to be attractive with a "young-person's build."

The victim said the woman was accompanied by multiple black males who were wearing masks and dark hoodies.

Authorities have also identified a potential vehicle of interest in the case, which was described as a white or pearl-colored late-model Toyota Camry.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Detective M. Christian with the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Section at 678-513-5920 during normal business hours. After hours contact can be made with the Dispatch Center at 770-781-3087.
