Local Thai restaurant Baan Thai was robbed at gunpoint on Thanksgiving weekend. According to Conyers Police Department reports, on Saturday, Nov. 28 around 9 p.m., witnesses observed two black males approach and then enter the establishment (located at 1745 Highway 138 in Conyers) on foot.

One of the suspects approached the counter and asked for a menu, put it down and then reportedly pulled out a small handgun. He then proceeded to point the gun and demand that everyone get down on the floor, repeatedly saying "Don't move," and, "I'll use this." He then approached the register and commanded the attendant to give him all the money in the register, which she did.

As the second man stood guarding the door during the entire robbery, the man with the gun next demanded money from two customers sitting in the restaurant. The armed man finally walked back toward the door and he and the second man, who were described as roughly 5-foot-8 and 5-5, left on foot.

Police were called and arrived on the scene at approximately 9:48 p.m. Witness reports all similarly stated they could not determine which direction the suspects fled.
