Tieshounda Bell has been working at Waffle House restaurants in metro Atlanta for seven years. But it was a first when an armed man took her car and phone Thursday while she was on a break.
“I’m scared, traumatized,” she told Channel 2 Action News.
She said she was working the night shift at the restaurant on Flat Shoals Road in Union City when she went outside to take a break. The incident happened when she walked toward her Chevrolet Impala, which was parked in front of the restaurant, according to Channel 2.
“As I was approaching my car to get in, he ended up walking up and had the gun in the door trying to keep me from closing it,” Bell said, “and was like, ‘Get out, give me the keys.’”
She thinks the man was watching and waiting for a chance to catch her off-guard.
“When I saw the gun, I’m like, my life fixing to be taken,” she said.
