Two men bound two Dairy Queen employees with zip ties before fleeing the store with cash from the front register Monday, according to police reports.
Police responded to a report of an armed robbery around 9 p.m. Monday at Dairy Queen, 1818 Coliseum Blvd. N.
An employee told police that as she walked to the front of the restaurant to lock the doors, a man wearing a ski masked pulled open the door, pointed a gun at her and ordered her to open the cash register.
A second man followed the employee and the first man into the store, according to police reports. At least one of the men was armed, according to police reports.
A second employee who was cleaning the grill in the back of the restaurant was directed to open the register near the drive-thru window. The employee told police that he couldn’t get the drawer open. Before fleeing, the men bound both employees with zip ties.
The employees described one robber as a black man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black shirt underneath and blue jeans with a gold design on the back pockets. The second robber was described as a white man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and black and gray shoes, the report said.
Employees told police that the men fled in a boxy-style vehicle that was dark in color with tinted windows.
