Two men wielding a gun forced a Plainfield pizza restaurant employee to turn over $2,000 in cash late Sunday night, police said.
The suspects approached the employee as he/she was leaving , 11830 S. Route 59, at about 11:40 p.m., Detective Sgt. Kevin McQuaid said in a media release. They produced a gun, ordered the employee back into the store and forced him to open the safe, McQuaid said.
After taking possession of the restaurant's bank deposit envelope containing $2,000, they fled out the back door, he said.
The first suspect is described as a black male standing about 6-foot-2 and weighing about 215 pounds. The second was a black male standing about 5-foot-10 to 6 feet and weighing about 200 pounds. Both were wearing black hooded jackets and had red bandanas covering their faces.
Police ask anyone with information about the incident to contact McQuaid at 815-267-7209 or Detective Colin Mulacek at 815-439-7654.
