Employees and customers at the Wendy’s restaurant on South Service Road in Austell were surprised to see a man standing outside holding a gun with a bandanna covering his face early Thursday morning.
The group tried to flee out the back door of the restaurant, but Cobb Police say the man forced them back inside and demanded their money. He also had one of the employees to give him money from the restaurant’s safe. The armed robbery happened just after 6 a.m.
The robber is described as a black male, 5’06 “ to 5’08” tall, 140 to155 lbs. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie, black pants, black sunglasses, police said.
