Police searching for two suspects in Decatur restaurant armed robbery

- Police are searching for two suspects who robbed multiple people at a restaurant at gunpoint in Decatur, according to Decatur Police Department.

A woman was exiting the back door of The Pinewood early Friday morning when a man wearing a black mask and hooded sweatshirt pointed a handgun at her head and forced her to her knees, according to a police report obtained by FOX 5.

The masked suspect asked the woman about where the money was kept, and who was left in the restaurant, according to police.

The suspect dragged the woman into the break room and bound her hands behind the back using zip ties, according to the police report. 

A second suspect then entered the restaurant, and both proceeded to round up restaurant employees, according to authorities.

Once the five employees were tied up in the break room, the suspects demanded their belongings like car keys, cell phones, wallets, and weapons, according to the report. The employees then told the suspects where the cash was stored.

Once the suspects fled the scene, the victims were able to break free from being tied down. Police are still investigating the scene and looking for information.

If you have any information related to this case, please contact police immediately.
