Reward offered for information leading to arrest of 4 armed masked restaurant robbers

Authorities in Atlanta are offering up to a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in a violent restaurant robbery last month.

It happened at the Velvet Taco Restaurant located at 77 West Paces Ferry Road around 4:43 a.m. on Nov. 23, after the establishment had closed. Police said four armed masked men stormed the restaurant and demanded cash. During the encounter, the female manager of the restaurant was pistol-whipped and a gun went off. It thankfully did not strike anyone.

While their faces are covered, investigators hope someone will recognize their clothing.

Police said they left the restaurant with about $3,255 in cash.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477). Tipsters can remain anonymous.
