VENICE (CBSLA) – Police are searching for two male suspects who robbed a Thai restaurant at gunpoint late Thursday night, sending employees scurrying to safety.
At around 10:30 p.m., the two suspects entered Wirin Thai, located at 238 Lincoln Boulevard.
At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun, which he brandished at employees, several of whom ran into the back of the restaurant and locked themselves in a bathroom, Los Angeles police said.
The suspects stole a cash register which contained about $400, police disclosed. They fled in a silver-colored Nissan. They remain at large Friday.
There were no injuries in the incident.
Surveillance video of the robbery showed both suspects dressed in hooded-sweatshirts with their faces mostly covered. There were no immediate suspect descriptions.
