Two Armed, Masked Men Rob Greenville Restaurant, Hit Manager

A Greenville restaurant was held up by two armed men early Sunday morning.

It happened about 2:37 a.m. at Burger King located on 1702 Stantonsburg Road.

Police say after the restaurant closed, two suspects wearing masks and armed with handguns entered the business and confronted the manager.

Police say the armed robbers attempted to force the manager into the freezer. In the process, one of them struck the manager in the head with the handgun. Police say the manager was able to escape and ran out of the business.

The gunmen then took off with an undetermined amount of money.

    To I love these boards. I live in lake elsworth a very nice family neighborhood and a detective just came to my house and said there was a break-in saturday.17 cars were broken into in this neighborhood 1 year ago and a couple cars were broken into in may Im just wondering where were the cops saturday they are suppose to patrol this area regularly no other solved crimes were reported.According to you Im guessing they were (busting down doors and hopping out of cars) yeah right.I don't know what they were doing but I know what they were not doing there job.I don't know where you get your info from but I what check that source.GPD job is not just for low crime areas or rich areas it is for the entire city of greenville hints the name.Thank God you are not on the force because that would be one instance where this whole situation could be worst.

    To I love these boards Im sure you are right there with them so called busting down doors all night because the ones I see are just riding around so take your own advice and dont talk about things you don't know where there is weed there is a thug what? That is stupid.And think of what your saying while there in the rich stuck up neighborhoods protecting those scared little people the real thugs are out commiting murders and robberies.And your little fake statistic that most of all armed robberies happen from people who work there.I bet you do love these boards because you can get up here and act intelligent.And where is anybody talking about weed? Weed is not the problem and again its not the college students.Your telling me every murderer or thief smokes weed I don't think so.And I totally agree they are jumping out on people all night but it for petty things.Oh yea and your not a cop and you don't know.

    Dont blame the voters or the police or the chief. ITs the justice system itself! When these thugs rob a place and hurt people, they should get the death penalty. Simple enough. I am so tired of these stupid people getting away with this stuff. I am black but I dont care if they are black, white, blue, green or orange; give them the chair and this will stop these dummies from doing this stuff. If they were in other countries, they would wanted dead or alive and when found they would get the chair!! So its not the police or the chief. Its us letting this stuff go to far!!!

    I like how everyone talks about stuff they know nothing about. So ignorant. Most of all armed robberies are done by someone that works there or knows someone that works there. Cops can only do so much with no help from citizens. TO DB students are the ones buying the most weed around greenville, so where there is weed there is more than likley a thug. Those cops are in neighborhoods with low crime to keep crime out. The task force is kicking in doors and jumping out on people all night long. So don't talk about stuff you have no clue about. Everyone of you that doubt the cops; ask to do a ride-along with the impact unit. I'm not a cop but I do know.

    Until the brain-washed ignorant voters get off their high horses in Greenville and elect new (not incumbent) officials who can get us a Police Chief who knows how to handle criminals,just prop your feet up and read the articles about these thugs taking over the city...Nothing is going to change until the population becomes disgusted enough to change it....So far the incumbent politicians are confident that we don't have enough moxey to do anything about the crime rate......too bad they're right.....Vote them all out and let's see if things change....they certainly can't get any worse!

    To anonymous 3:00 what are you talking about its time to do something as a community please tell me what is there for the community to do and your wrong it is the chiefs fault and the rest of the GPD not doing there jobs they are to busy writing speeding tickets and tasing the hardworking college students downtown that will one day give back to society instead of take away from it.I see tons of cops at night hiding out in areas where there is practically no crime and don't say that is why they are there they are just taking a break when they should be in these high risk areas.The crime will never decrease until we hold the ones accountable who were hired to SERVE AND PROTECT this saying will not be here much longer they are not in power for the community WAKE UP there are here for there own agendas

    Families need to stop asking the community for help getting their kids in line and do the work themselves. It is nonsense when parents say they can not control their kids, no matter how old they are. And, if this is one community in particular, get a grip on your kids!!!
