STOCKBRIDGE — It’s a case of no rules, just wrong.
Henry County Police are looking for a group of men who they say held up the Outback Steakhouse off I-75 in Stockbridge on July 13 as customers dined near closing time. No one was injured.
The restaurant is just off Eagles Landing Parkway and I-75 Exit 224 and is in a commercial cul-de-sac that can only be accessed through one small, winding road.
Police say the crew banged on the take-out door. When an employee opened it, two armed, masked men barged in, snatched the tip jar, employees’ cellphones and a cash register, then jumped into a getaway car and headed for I-75.
Police chased the vehicle to the overpass at Walt Stephens near I-675, where the suspects abandoned the car and allegedly fired about five rounds.
K-9 units and Georgia State Patrol troopers joined the search, briefly detaining a man who they later determined was not a suspect.
