Authorities are searching for two young, male suspects accused of robbing the Waffle House on Sigman Road at gunpoint early Tuesday morning.
According to one customer and two employees present at the time, two young black men came into the restaurant just after 4am brandishing semi-automatic handguns and "politely" asked the server to put money in a drawstring bag. The witnesses said the suspects were wearing sock hats and black bandanas over their face.
The female waitress on duty placedthe cash and the change in the bag and the suspects allegedly stated "have a good night" before exiting the restaurant. All three victims said the suspects appeared very calm and polite. They did not see the two men arrive or leave in the vehicle.
According to the incident report, surveillance video from the Waffle House parking lot shows the men parked a dark, four-door vehicle, possibly a 1996 Honda Civic, near the dumpster just before the robbery and left in the same vehicle.
One of the male suspects was described as wearing a dark colored sock hat, a dark bandana with white marks covering his nose and mouth, a large dark jacket with a white undershirt, dark colored pants, and tan work-style boots. The other suspect male has a slim build and was wearing a dark colored sock hat on his head, a dark bandana with white marks covering his nose and mouth, a dark colored long sleeve shirt with a white undershirt sticking out of the bottom, grey or khaki colored pants and dark shoes. The suspects' drawstring bag appeared to be black with red lettering or logo on it, according to authorities.
The incident report stated the suspects avoided leaving fingerprints by covering their hands with their shirts and using their feet to open the doors upon entering and exiting the restaurant.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Rockdale County Sheriffs' Department at 770-483-4200.
