CANTON, Ga. -- A man who robbed a restaurant in Cherokee County probably didn't realize that a security camera captured a clear close-up of his face.

The camera shows footage of a man robbing the Rainbow Asia restaurant on Sixes Road in Canton at around 10 a.m. Monday.

Cherokee County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jay Baker said the suspect took cash, customers' checks, a Kindle Fire and an iPod Touch from the restaurant. He got into the building through a back door, which the owners discovered open when they arrived at work the day of the robbery, Baker said.

Anyone who recognizes the man in the video is asked to call investigators at 770-928-0239.
