Suspects in string of robberies may be connected to Walker County home invasion

Posted: Updated:

Two suspects, arrested in a string of robberies outside of Atlanta, may be connected to a 2015 home invasion in Walker County.

Gwinnett County Police arrested Arielle McMillan, 26, and Christopher Evans, 28, in connection with two armed robberies in Duluth and Tucker.

According to press release, McMillan met a man at a hotel on November 28, 2015. When she demanded money and he refused another man entered the room and a struggle followed. The victim was shot in the thigh before McMillan and two male suspects were seen leaving the property.

Then on December 29, 2015, two black males robbed two men leaving work. One of the victims was shot in both legs. Witnesses saw a silver SUV picking up the suspects and fleeing the scene.

It was that same SUV that linked the pair to a home invasion in Walker County a few months prior. Channel 3 spoke to the victim in that case who described seeing the suspects leave in a silver SUV.

Warrants were issued Evans in McMillan in the two robberies. It wasn’t until Doraville Police Officers pulled the pair over that they were arrested. The pair led those officers on a police chase before being captured Wednesday night.

Both suspects are being held at the Dekalb County Jail.

According to Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson, the pair will likely be charged in the Walker County home invasion next week. For now he’s calling them “strong suspects” in the case.
