Gunman robs disabled man
•NORCROSS - A disabled 62-year-old man was robbed Tuesday in the parking lot of Oakbrook Pointe Apartments on Pirkle Road.
The man had parked in the handicap space near his apartment and was gathering his belongings to go inside when an unidentified man wielding a gun approached him. The man clutched his shirt pocket, where he had money from a Social Security check he had cashed earlier in the day, according to a police report.
The robber ripped open the pocket and stole both the cash and a cell phone belonging to the victim. The suspect is described as a black man between 25 and 30 years old with a shaved head, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and 215 pounds.
Argument at Golden Arches
•LAWRENCEVILLE - A confrontation erupted Saturday between a McDonald's manager and an impatient customer at the restaurant at 4915 Sugarloaf Parkway.
A 40-year-old Lawrenceville woman told police she grew frustrated because the line was moving very slowly. An employee reportedly told her one of the machines was broken.
The woman sarcastically replied "a million served, a million made," at which time the manager became angry, according to a police report. The manager allegedly threatened to beat up the woman and tried to reach through the drive-through window toward her. Another employee had to restrain the manager, the police report stated.
No charges were filed against either party.
