Suspect fires a parting shot in stickup of Chinese restaurant in Warner Robins

Warner Robins police continue to investigate a Monday evening stickup at a Chinese restaurant.

At 8:54 p.m. Monday, officers were called to the Top Wok at 1244 Watson Blvd. in reference to an armed robbery with a shot fired, according to a Warner Robins police news release.

Warner Robins police Assistant Chief John Wagner said no one was hurt in the robbery.

Two men came into the restaurant, one brandishing a handgun, and demanded money from the cashier, according to the release.

The men fled on foot northwest toward McArthur Boulevard with an undisclosed amount of cash.

While running, one of the men fired a small gun and a bullet struck the drive-thru window of the restaurant.

No customers were inside the restaurant at the time of the incident. A police dog used to track the suspects was unsuccessful.

The suspects were described as a 6-foot-tall, skinny black man wearing black clothing and a ski mask and a skinny black male, about 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet, wearing dark clothing and a bandanna over his face, the release said.

Anyone with information about the holdup is urged to phone anonymous tips to Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
