Armed robbers hit Chinese restaurant in Fayetteville


By Josh Akeman

Two armed robbers made off with an unspecified amount of money from the Golden Chopstix after holding up employees at the restaurant in Hudson Plaza in Fayetteville.
According to Lt. Mike Whitlow with the Fayetteville Police Department, at approximately 9:15 on Thursday night two black males entered the restaurant through the rear door. One of the black males was carrying a pistol and wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up which obstructed his face. Whitlow said the witnesses at the restaurant could not identify what type of pistol.
The second black male was wearing a skull mask.
The police department is not saying how much money was taken, but Whitlow said, in addition to money stolen from the restaurant, the men also took wallets from the workers.
Whitlow said canine units established a track that suggested the two men left out the back of the restaurant toward the Dairy Queen parking lot. He said the trail ended there, suggesting they left in a car from that point.
Police are currently reviewing surveillance video from Golden Chopstix as well as other surrounding businesses.
