Two employees charged in Chick-fil-A armed robbery

WOODSTOCK, Ga. -- Two men face charges from an armed robbery that happened at a Chick-fil-A on Eagle Drive in Woodstock on Thursday. 

Two men, who work at the Chick-fil-A, entered the store around 7:00 that evening. A manager was working on closing duties, while authorities said the suspects lingered around. 

While off duty, Jeremy Huffman, 19, then showed a gun, pointed it at the manager, and demanded money from the safe. Once Huffman had cash, he ran from the restaurant. 

Captain Joe Perkins of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said deputies began to search the area, and soon found the second suspect, Jacob Rybak in the wooded area along Towne Lake Parkway. 

Deputies determined Rybak was in on the robbery with Huffman, and arrested him. 

Later around midnight, deputies found Huffman at a home on Fieldstone Way. Overnight, they were not able to make contact with Huffman, so a Cherokee County S.W.A.T. team entered the home around 6:00 a.m. Friday. 

Inside, they arrested Huffman, and recovered the cash and gun. 

Huffman is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault and obstruction of an officer. Rybak is charged with armed robbery. 

Both men are being held at the Cherokee County Jail with no bond.
