Two men, both 22, have been indicted by a Clayton County Grand Jury in connection with armed robberies of several Waffle House restaurants, and aggravated assault against a restaurant employee, Clayton County Superior Court documents show.

The indictment, issued on Wednesday, identifies Dorian Lemar Evans, of Stockbridge, and Christopher Wilson, of Lithonia, as the pair who allegedly robbed several Waffle House restaurants.

Clayton County police said the hold-ups include restaurants in Rex, Jonesboro, and McDonough.

According to the indictment, the crimes covered a seven-day period, from April 14, to April 21, in 2008. The locations included restaurants on Highway 42, Highway 20 and Old Dixie Road.

In one daring robbery, Evans and Wilson allegedly entered a Waffle House, in Jonesboro, brandishing a gun, and assaulted an employee, according to a Clayton County arrest warrant.

After being arrested for another armed robbery, in neighboring McDonough, police said, "Both [suspects] confessed to committing several other Waffle House armed robberies," according to the warrant used in the indictment.
