CONYERS -- Two young black males armed with handguns held up the Sigman Road Waffle House restaurant early Tuesday morning.
Two female employees and a male customer were inside the restaurant at about 4:15 a.m. when the suspects came in with their faces covered with bandannas and armed with semi-automatic handguns, according to a report by the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office.
Witnesses told authorities that the two men were calm and polite during the robbery. They reportedly told those inside the restaurant that they were only there for the money and were not going to hurt anyone. One of the suspects had brought a bag to carry the money.
Once one of the employees had placed the money in the bag, one of the suspects reportedly said, "Have a good night," and both suspects left the store.
Witnesses did not see a car leave the restaurant, but video surveillance tape from a parking lot camera showed a small, dark four-door passenger car driving into the parking lot at about 4:06 a.m. and park near the Dumpster. The tape showed two males enter the store and start making motions toward the employees, according to the report.
Both suspects were wearing dark sock hats and had dark bandannas with white marks covering their noses and mouths. One of the suspects was wearing a large dark jacket with a white undershirt, dark-colored pants and tan work-style boots. The second suspect was described as slim-built and wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt, a white undershirt, gray or khaki pants and dark shoes.
