Last night — and over the span of just 30 seconds to a minute — two men entered North Highland Pub in Inman Park and robbed the business and its patrons.
Around a half-dozen bar guests and the bartender who was on duty told police that two men, both dark-complected, one of them armed with a gun, entered the bar at around 11:30 and demanded patron's valuables as well as money from the cash register.
Here are some excerpts from the narrative:
The victims stated that it was two males with dark complexions and were wearing all dark clothing. The first suspect was described as looking older and taller than the second suspect.
The victims thought suspect #1 might have been near thirty years old and a thin build. The first suspect was wearing a [do-rag] along with a winter like cap that had floppy sides to cover his ears, and was armed with a silver and black handgun. The second suspect was described as looking younger than the first suspect possibly in his late twenties. Suspect #2 was short with a thin build, and had a goatee. The second suspect was not armed with a weapon.
The victims stated that the two men entered the business and immediately pointed the firearm at everyone, and ordered them to put their valuables on the bar and to not try anything stupid. [The bartender], stated he was ordered to hand over the money in the cash register, so he opened the cash register and gave the suspect the entire cash drawer from the register. The suspects then collected all the victims' valuables that were located on the bar and fled the scene.
The victims were not sure if there was a vehicle close by but did advise police that the suspects fled on foot heading Southbound on North Highland Avenue. All the victims stated that the suspects were in and out of the business in what seemed like only thirty seconds to a minute.
Zone 6 officers canvassed the area for the suspects to no avail. The bar has security cameras, but police say they weren't working.
