The GA Voice reports that two men were beaten and robbed late Sunday night after leaving the popular gay bar, Blakes, located in the Piedmont Midtown area.
The men, identified as Drew Childs and Trenton Thieler, told the Atlanta Police Department they were robbed at 9th Street and Argonne Avenue. The police received the call at about 2:40 a.m.
Childs and Theiler had left Blake’s, located on 10th Street, and were walking toward Argonne Avenue when they said they were approached by two black men who struck Theiler on the back of his head. Theiler ran to 10th Street to escape and the the two men then attacked Childs, hitting him in the face several times and taking his wallet, according to the APD.
One of the victims tweeted the next day after the mugging “What a night. Said good-bye to all my friends, got mugged, and woke-up in an ambulance. #wondrous #hateatlanta”. The Midtown Piedmont area has been no stranger to muggings. Last year, several muggings took place in the area including Piedmont Park where Atlanta Police promised to beef up security.
