STONE MOUNTAIN - A Krystal's restaurant was held up by a man who employees believed had a gun on Saturday at 4:45 a.m.

Two men forced into apartment, tied up and robbed
DULUTH - Two men were forced into an apartment at Gwinnett Crossings at 2202 West Liddell Road on Saturday and robbed at gunpoint.
The victims told police they were approached at 7 p.m. by four armed Hispanic men who ordered them to go into an apartment. The suspects put guns against the victims' heads and told them to keep their eyes shut or they would be killed, according to police reports. One of the victims was struck in the face, causing a bloody nose.

Man threatens cashier with knife
NORCROSS - A man came into a Norcross dollar store and threatened the cashier with a knife on Thursday at 1:15 p.m.
The suspect entered the 4650 Jimmy Carter Blvd. store with a black, box-cutter style knife and told the cashier to open the register, a police report said.
The cashier, who had seen the man earlier in the day and the day before, thought the man was joking and told the suspect no, the report said.
The suspect then put the knife to the cashier's throat, took the money from the register and put the cashier in the back bathroom and shut the door, the report said.
The cashier stayed in the bathroom for 20 minutes and told police that when she came out the suspect was gone and customers were shopping.
The suspect took about $100 from the register.
The cashier described the suspect as a black man in his 50s, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with white hair.
