Cobb Cops Hunt Holdup Woman

By Veronica Waters

AUSTELL, Ga. None —

Cobb County Police search for a gun-toting woman who held up a Chinese restaurant in Austell.

Wednesday, the woman walked into the Panda Garden at 3753 Austell Road and sat down, as if she was ready to place an order.  But this customer had much more than shrimp fried rice in mind.

"The business owner approached the female as if she was a regular customer, to get ready to take her order," says Sgt. Mike Bowman.  "Then all of a sudden, the suspect just pulled out a handgun and demanded that she be given money from the cash register."

The suspect took off with cash, and is described as black, about 5'8"-5'10" tall, with a medium complexion and a large build, wearing a hoodie.  She may have gotten away in a light-colored Toyota Corolla.

Tipsters are asked to call Cobb Police at (770) 499-3945.
