Thieves who robbed a Domino’s location in Newport News, Virginia, reportedly forced the restaurant’s two employees to relinquish cash and walk into the freezer so that they could make their escape, according to 13 News Now, an ABC affiliate.
The robbery, which took place around midnight on Sunday, July 19, was not recorded, because the location does not have any surveillance cameras. One employee, a 26-year-old man, was hit in the head with a gun held by one of the robbers. The other employee, a 48-year-old woman, was uninjured.
Authorities suspect that the thieves are behind a series of similar crimes committed in the area, including robberies of a local Taco Bell and Sonic, as well as an attempted robbery at a Burger King.
Police are asking for help identifying the suspects, who are believed to be armed with handguns and wearing dark clothing and ski masks.
