Police are searching for teenagers they say robbed members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra when they were coming back from a rehearsal.

 

WSB-TV reports that Monday night, two members of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra told police three teens robbed them after a rehearsal.  The symphony says two chorus members were robbed near their parked cars on Peachtree Circle, about a block away from Symphony Hall.

 

One victim says one of the robbers chased him with a gun before they took off.

 

The robbery comes a little more than two weeks after two men were robbed on Peachtree Circle in broad daylight a quarter mile away.

 

Neighbors say a plan for street cameras is in the works. Private security is moving their patrol hours later at night.
