- Atlanta Police now call two men who ambushed a popular Atlanta restaurant "serial robbers," and said they also terrorized workers from two other businesses Monday.

Police said two men from Mama's Restaurant surveillance that FOX 5 showed earlier this week also, within the span of several hours, held up the CVS off Cheshire Bridge Road, and the owner of Scottish Tobacco at the Buckhead Crossing shopping center. 

"They just pulled out the gun in my face," said Akbar Alam of Scottish Tobacco, who was taking out the trash late Monday night when the men demanded the money from his pockets. "I raised my hands and said, guys, please don't kill me," he said.
