In less than 48 hours, a woman and a married couple were held at gunpoint in the Edgewood retail district.
All watched helplessly as their cars were stolen.
Now Atlanta police think the same suspects may be responsible for both carjackings.
“I feel frightened,” said the first victim, who does not want her name published.
Last Thursday the woman had just finished shopping at the Ross store on Moreland Avenue. She was getting in her car parked right in front of the store when a gunman came at her.
“He was able to open the door and at that point he put the gun to my head and told me to get out,” the victim told Channel 2 Action News. “All I could think is it's a material possession. You can have it.”
And they took it. She says the suspect had two friends waiting around the corner of the building. They came rushing in to take the car and left a parting shot for the victim.
“He punched me in my face. Told me give me the phone. I gave him the phone and he jumped in the car,” she said.
Less than 48 hours later Randy Butterfield and his wife say a something similar happened to them while they were walking to their car parked on Gresham Avenue.
Early Saturday morning two armed young men stole their Volvo.
“They were pointing (the gun) at our heads,” said Randy Butterfield. “It was very surreal.”
Police later found it Monday morning. Wrecked and out of gas.
Investigators aren’t clear if the two crimes are connected.
