Witnesses told police it started when a group of six people inside the restaurant confronted another man who was also inside the eatery. The victim was physically assaulted by members of the group before they left the restaurant.

The suspect then got into a car and left the scene.

No injuries were reported by restaurant patrons or the victim. The suspect and members of the group have not been identified at this time.

One of the Waffle House’s windows and its door are boarded up.
