On Friday August 26th as the Bojangles restaurant at 3638 S. New Hope Road in Gastonia prepared to open, an armed male suspect held up the staff, stealing an undisclosed amount of money.
This week, the Gastonia Police Department released surveillance video of the robbery hoping that someone may recognize the bandit.
He entered the restaurant armed with a handgun, threatened the employees and demanded that they open the safe. When officers responded, he had already fled in a light-colored minivan.
