WOODSTOCK, Ga. -

Police hope a photo of a man walking a dog will lead them to suspects in the robbery and arson of a video game store in Woodstock.

Authorities have released a surveillance photo of a man walking in from of the Play N' Trade shortly before it was robbed on the morning of Sept. 29.

Police say one or several men set the place on fire after holding employees at gunpoint. After they got out, eyewitnesses say the manager Troy Brazelton went back in to make sure everyone was safe.

Tom Fent, who owns the martial arts studio next door to Play N' Trade, is watching developments. Fent praised Brazelton's actions after the robbery.

"He would do anything to help anybody. I think he proved it when he ran in with the place on fire to get anybody out that was in there," Fent said.

A store employee identifying himself only as Zack said the manager is home from the hospital recovering from burns. He said they are trying to get the store reopened before Christmas.

The fire and robbery has prompted more than concern among business owners in the area; it has also prompted generosity.

"Being burned as bad as he was, I think anybody can see that he needs our help," Fent said.

Tom Fent started a Facebook site to help Brazelton. Other businesses in Woodstock started their own. The generosity is matched only by the desire to see the suspects caught.

Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects in the incident.

Woodstock police believe that three white men fled the scene in a late model blue Chevrolet SUV.

Anyone with tips is urged to call the Woodstock Police Department at 770-592-6030.
