A former employee of California Pizza Kitchen at Atlantic Station allegedly robbed his employers when he returned to pick up his last paycheck, Atlanta Police said.
According to the police report, on Aug. 15 the ex-employee showed up to get his last paycheck and followed another employee inside the manager’s office. The suspect allegedly pulled out a small black handgun and pointed it at both CPK employees.
The suspect had worked at CPK for a little over three months and had recently been fired, the police report says.
“[One of the victims] stated that the suspect was upset at [CPK] for terminating him and demanded the money from the safe,” the police report says. “[One of the victims] stated that the suspect repeatedly stated that he was going to shoot [one employee] in the ‘f&$!ing head.'”
One employee opened the safe and gave the suspect $2,100 in cash, which the suspect placed in his backpack.
The suspect then allegedly marched the employees out of the office and through the back door into a hallway behind the restaurant. The suspect tried to get on the elevator, but the elevator didn’t work, police said. The suspect allegedly made the employees walk to the rear stairwell and through the double doors. He told them to empty their pockets and provide their wallets and cell phones. They said they didn’t have them. The suspect then allegedly said if they pulled out their cell phones, he would shoot them. One of the employees remembered he did have a cell phone in his back pocket, but didn’t pull it out. The suspect allegedly made them count to 10, closed the door. The CPK employees think he may have exited through the double door.
Police said the suspect is named Bryant Frazer. He is described as a black male, age 26, who has tattoos on his neck and long dreadlocks. At the time of the incident, he was allegedly wearing a black shirt and dark jeans, carrying black backpack. There are video cameras in the manager’s office and in the hallway, police said. They have not arrested the suspect as of Aug. 17.
