JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Police are investigating a Thursday morning business robbery.

It happened at the Waffle House on Highway 18.

Jackson Police say a black man in a red bandanna walked into the restaurant armed with a handgun and bolt cutters and robbed the location.

We’re told the suspect got away with cash from the register and the safe. Police say the robber used bolt cutters to cut the lock on the safe.

The robber ran away from the Waffle House and got into a green Chevy Tahoe with a busted tail light, Commander Tyree Jones with Jackson Police said. Another man was driving that vehicle.

Our crews did see emergency responders checking on police inside the restaurant. Jackson Police say no one was hurt.

If you have any information that could help police with their investigation, give them a call at 601.960.1234.
