“Meet the Browns” stars David and Tamela Mann say their car was broken into just steps away from a Red Lobster restaurant where they were eating in Camp Creek Marketplace.
Police were investigating the break-in Tuesday, East Point spokesman Capt. Cliff Chandler told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The couple, in town for a comedy show, posted a video about the incident Monday night on Facebook.
In the video, David Mann said he and his wife and acting partner had not been seated very long when a woman ran into the restaurant and told them someone was breaking into their car.
He said he ran outside and tried to grab one of three men getting into a black four-door Kia with tinted windows.
“We were so close, I could’ve grabbed the guy,” David Mann said. “He closed the door right before I got him, so I punched the window.”
Then the driver took off, leaving behind an Adidas shoe, Tamela Mann said.
The men stole the actor’s backpack with a new computer and travel documents inside and actress Tamela Mann’s jewelry, the couple said.
“We put in time and work for our stuff,” Tamela Mann said. “For somebody to just come and take your stuff, after you [have] worked for it, I mean that’s like, horrible.”
