Man is forced to rob restaurant

February 23, 2004

Valdosta - A South Georgia man says he was forced to rob a restaurant.

Around 3:00 this morning, 31-year-old Michael Glasgow walked into the Huddle House on St. Augustine Road in Valdosta and demanded money. Just a few seconds later, another man came in behind him armed with a shotgun.

Glasgow ran out of the restaurant and took off in his truck. The suspect ran after him and shot out the front window. Glasgow received a few minor cuts from the glass but wasn't seriously injured. "What he's telling us right now is that he was involved in the incident, but he's alleging he was a victim and we're still looking into that right now. He is currently not under arrest," said Lt. Brian Childress.

After the suspect shot at Glasgow, he went back into the restaurant and took an undisclosed amount of money. He also stole a vehicle from one of the employees.

Police found the car abandoned, but are still looking for the suspect.
