Surveillance video caught a horrifying scene during a robbery in Clayton County, Georgia and today police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects.
The video shows two men holding a family at gunpoint as they demand the restaurant’s owner open the safe.
The family including several children are ordered to lay flat on their stomachs on the ground.
“I looked up. All I saw was the barrel in my head,” owner John Nop said to WSB-TV. “(They came) straight up on me and just pulled a gun in my face.”
At one point, the gunman threatened to kill the kid’s father right in front of them.
“They told my kids that if they even made a peep they’d shoot their daddy,” Nop told Fox 29.
This happened Saturday at the Boston Fish Supreme Restaurant. Nop had just opened the restaurant in July with his wife Phirun Khoun. The couple is asking for more police presence in the area.
“My kids, they’re my everything I don’t want to jeopardize them if it ever happened again,” said Khoun.
The robbers made off with all the cash and took off.
