Anyone with information about the robbery can call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.

Authorities responded to the restaurant at 3864 Savannah Highway around 7:30 p.m., according to an incident report.

Witnesses reported to investigators that two men with guns stormed into the restaurant from a side door and demanded money. An employee walked with the men toward a safe in a back office while another ran from the restaurant and called 911, the report said.

The suspects then fled the store with around $1,800. They dropped some of the cash on the ground as they ran, deputies said.

Both suspects wore gloves and hooded sweatshirts pulled over their heads. One of the men wore a blue baseball cap under his hood, deputies said.

The suspects had not been identified Friday.
