eaterwaho523.jpgAn armed robbery at the Waffle House in Lithonia last night ended in a standoff between one of the suspects and the police, reports the AJC. The first alleged robber was taken into custody immediately, but the other man fled to a nearby parking lot and, armed with a handgun, held off officers for more than four hours before finally surrendering. Nobody was harmed in the conflict, but businesses in the area, including a Krystal, were evacuated— leaving Lithonia residents "with no fine dining options." [AJC]
