NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) — Police are searching for a man who used a pitchfork to rob a Waffle House restaurant northeast of Atlanta.

Norcross police say 50-year-old Jeffery Wooten entered the diner in Norcross, Georgia, Thursday night and forced people toward a back room. He then grabbed the cash register.

WSB-TV reports ( ) that the suspect dropped the pitchfork while carrying that cash register back to his truck.

Two restaurant workers followed the robber outside, grabbed the abandoned pitchfork and used it to smash a window on the robber's truck as he escaped, possibly injuring the suspect.

Norcross Police Chief Warren Summers says investigators have secured a warrant charging Wooten with armed robbery. He has not yet been caught.
