CONYERS -- Two gunmen held up employees of the Subway restaurant on Sigman Road Friday night and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
A male employee told the Conyers Police Department that he was working behind the counter at about 10:15 p.m. when two black males entered the restaurant through the front door armed with black semi-automatic handguns. The employee told police that one of the suspects jumped over the counter and told him to open the safe. The other suspect reportedly ran to the end of the counter and followed the employee to the safe.
The employee told the suspects he couldn't open the safe but he could open the cash register. He reportedly opened the cash register and stepped back while the first suspect grabbed the cash and the other grabbed the cash box.
The two suspects then ran out of the back door and headed east.
A female employee who was in the back of the restaurant when the suspects came in gave a similar account of the robbery. Video surveillance footage also corroborated the male employee's account of the incident. According to the tape, the robbery took 29 seconds.
One suspect was described as about 6 feet to 6 feet, 2 inches tall, 15 to 20 years of age, and wearing a black hoodie with a black bandanna over his face, black pants, black shoes and black gloves. The second suspect was described as 5 feet, 8 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall, 15 to 20 years of age, and wearing a blue hoodie, gray shirt under the hoodie, dark blue jeans, white shoes with blue accents and black gloves.
