On Saturday May 16, officers from the GPD responded to Louise’s Cafeteria located at 426 East Solomon St. in reference to a report of a person on person armed robbery.

Upon arrival, officers identified the victim as Frank Storey of Lilburn.

Storey stated that a black male covered in tattoos driving a blue Lincoln Town car robbed him a gun point and then fled the scene.  The victim was able to provide a tag number which helped officers locate the vehicle and suspect quickly.
