BLASDELL, N.Y. (WIVB) - A shocking scene played out at a Blasdell restaurant late Monday night. Southtowns police are hunting for the robbers who pulled a gun and tied up workers at an Outback Steakhouse.
The restaurant closes up around 10 p.m. on Monday nights, and it was about 15 minutes later that the terrifying scene developed.
Witnesses say that two black males, one armed with a gun, entered the rear door of the restaurant after closing when the kitchen employee opened it to take out the trash. Later, a third black male joined them.
Police says the suspects forced the employees back into the restaurant. Four employees were bound by the hands and feet with tape.
They took money from the register and from the employees, and then News 4 is told they fled the scene in the manager's car, a 2010 black Ford Focus. The vehicle was located by Buffalo Police outside of Maryner Towers.
