MARIETTA, Ga. -- A 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a recent robbery and attempted carjacking at a Marietta Target.
Sly Deon Sampson of Marietta was arrested Friday in Hillsborough County, Florida. He is awaiting extradition to Georgia.
The robbery happened at around 9:30 a.m Friday, June 10 at the Target at 2201 Cobb Parkway South.
According to investigators, a woman was attempting to take her child out of the back seat of her SUV when Sampson approached her and forced her back into the car.
The woman and her child were able to get out of the car, a dark blue 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, before police say Sampson drove it away.
Within an hour of the robbery, Marietta detectives say someone used the victim's credit cards to post escort services to an Atlanta-based adult entertainment website.
