ALPHARETTA, Ga. The Smashburger restaurant on Windward Parkway was robbed at gunpoint Nov. 19.

According to police, a single man walked into the burger restaurant and pulled out a gun. He forced the three workers there into the freezer and then raided the till for an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured.

Smashburger was closed the following day.

Alpharetta Public Safety Spokesman George Gordon said police are pursuing leads on the suspect; however he cautioned the public against fighting with an armed robber unless there is a fear for one's life.

"We don't ask for anybody in the public to ever confront someone who is armed," Gordon said. "Just comply with the suspect."

    North Fulton County is changing fast. Unfortunately, as the area continues to grow and add mass transit, we will continue to see crime rise. We move to the suburbs to get away from the city and crime, but it is following us. Need a stronger presence of law enforcement to let the thieves know it will not be tolerated. We have to stand up for what is right or we are going to be forced to move even further North.
