Two male suspects, one of them allegedly wielding a gun, stole thousands of dollars from Piccadilly in Conyers on Sunday evening.

The two male suspects were dressed in all black when they allegedly took the $5,500 from the store's safe around 9:45 p.m., according to a Conyers police report.

When the assistant manager unlocked the front doors of the store to let employees leave for the night, the suspects allegedly forced the employees of the national cafeteria chain restaurant, located at 1536 Ga. Highway 138, back inside and told them to lie on the floor, according to the police report.

The suspects made the assistant manager dump the money out of the safe into a bag, and then they fled the scene before police arrived on the scene. No was harmed during the incident.

The suspects were described as wearing all black, with masks covering their heads. The suspect with the gun was described as being approximately 5'7" to 6'2" with a medium-sized frame.

Conyers Police spokesperson Kim Lucas says that as of Tuesday afternoon, there aren't any leads on the suspects, and that interviews with the employees are still being conducted.
