Decatur Police say a former Pinewood employee is a suspect in an armed robbery that took place at the restaurant in May.

A warrant has been issued for Carlous Bailey, 20, in the May 25 incident.

“Bailey was briefly employed at The Pinewood prior to the robbery,” the Decatur Police Department said. “Bailey is considered to be armed and dangerous. If you have information on this case or on Bailey’s whereabouts, please contact Inv. Lindsey at robert.lindsey@decaturga.c om or 678/553-6628 or you can contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404/577-TIPS(8477) and remain anonymous.”

The robbery took place on a midnight after closing.

“An employee stated she was exiting the rear of the business when one suspect pointed a handgun at her, forced her to her knees and began asking questions about how many people were still inside and where money was kept,” Lt. Jennifer Ross said at the time. “She was forced back into the restaurant and placed on the floor. Two suspects entered the business and rounded up the additional four victims inside of the restaurant. The victims were placed on the floor with their hands bound and questioned about the whereabouts of cash. The suspects also demanded car keys, cell phones, wallets and weapons. The suspects took cash from the business and the personal belongings (purses, wallets, phones, keys) from the five victims and fled. The business was closed at the time of the robbery. No injuries were reported.”

Police haven’t released any details about the second suspect.
