NORCROSS - A man retrieving his mail was reportedly robbed of $300 and pepper sprayed by three men at the Concepts 21 apartment complex.
The man told police he went outside to get his mail when two black men and a white man approached him suspiciously.

Meanwhile, one of the black men brandished a silver semiautomatic handgun and told him to "shut up" and give up his wallet. The man gave the trio his wallet - containing $300 in cash - and his cellular phone, according to the police report.
The men were described as young - around 20 to 25 years old - with tall, skinny builds.
