No injuries were reported Monday in the predawn armed robbery of several customers at a Buckhead Waffle House.
The robbery happened just after 6:30 a.m. at the 24-hour diner on Piedmont Road north of Pharr Road.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said three men from Philadelphia were robbed of nearly $40,000 in jewelry and iPhones.
Jones said the suspects took a $6,000 gold chain and medallion and a diamond-covered Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from Vincent Lamar Cash Out Robinson, a Rolex Submariner watch valued at $12,000 and a $500 iPhone from Raheem Jefferson and an iPhone 5 valued at $500 from Derrick Johnson.
The suspects then left the restaurant and fled on foot. Police have not released a detailed description of the robbers.

Anybody we know?
Ringo and Yolanda strike again........
The “suspects” knew these bling-covered out-of-towners were there with plenty of portable wealth.
>> Anybody we know?
Can’t say without knowing where you buy your coke. :-)
sounds like an insurance scam to me.
Well, maybe the Pancake House needs to change its name to Buckwheat....
I wonder if perhaps these two fine upstanding citizens owed someone some money?
Where they partying beforehand? That might explain it. Early breakfast is common among partiers.
I was going to ask the same question. Unless I need to, I rarely carry my wallet and I only carry as much cash as I think I will need.
I’ve eaten at that Waffle House. I used to live very close to it.
I think this is very near the “Gold Club”.
At least they weren’t roaming around playing “knock-out”on local crackers.
I suspect the "suspects" followed them from the Room Service Lounge.
Were, not “where.” Sigh...
Yep. The article goes on to say.... “the victims, who had previously been at the Room Service Lounge, arrived” ...
I always have Mr. Glock...
Isn’t this where Laz trolls for hotties?
Mischievous, high-spirited teens again, eh?
Yup. I know the whole “let’s party and then have waffles and bacon for breakfast!” scene.
