Men attack customer at Gwinnett Waffle House

A Waffle House customer was attacked by two men outside the Snellville restaurant, Gwinnett County police said.

The victim was waiting in line at the Waffle House at 3871 Stone Mountain Highway around 1:30 a.m. when one suspect said he had bumped him. The suspect “became aggressive and told the victim to meet him outside,” according to police. The victim tried to ignore the suspect and continued waiting in line to pick up a to-go order, according to a police report.

The suspect left the building and waited for the victim just outside the restaurant’s door, police said. After the victim picked up his to-go order and left the restaurant, the suspect attacked him and the two began to fight. A second suspect saw the fight and joined in beating the victim, police said. 

Both suspects fled the scene in a black Dodge Challenger, according to police. The victim was treated by emergency medical technicians at the scene and did not go to the hospital. He had a cut above his nose, a black eye and “extensive bruising” to the left side of his face in the immediate aftermath of the attack, according to a police report.

The first suspect was described in a police report as a man between 5’8” and 5’11”, weighing between 220 and 250 lbs, with very short hair or a bald head and a goatee. The second suspect was described as a man between 6’3” and 6’6”, weighing between 300 and 350 lbs and with very short hair or a bald head.
