An armed suspect entered the Smashburger on Windward Parkway Tuesday night, forced three employees inside a freezer and stole cash from the registers, according to an Alpharetta police report obtained by Channel 2 Action News.
Just after 10 p.m., the suspect entered the business and ordered fries. When the employee attempted to provide him change, he pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and told her to get on the ground, according to the report. He stole money from the register, then ordered the employee to get up and go to the back of the restaurant.
In the back, the armed man forced the employee, her manager and another colleague in a freezer, according to the report. The suspect repeatedly asked the manager how to access the safe.
After the manager believed the suspect had left, he pulled the alarm in the freezer and called police.
Alpharetta police are currently investigating the case and have no suspect in custody, according to Channel 2.
