Kansas City police are looking for two men who robbed the Sonic restaurant on Blue Ridge Blvd. on Sunday evening.
According to police reports, two masked black males made off with some $1,240 after pistol-whipping a female employee of the restaurant. The men asked for job applications before forcing their way into the restaurant from two different doors at about 6:45 p.m.
After entering, the suspects pointed a revolver and pump-action shotgun at the female employees and demanded money. After obtaining a cash drawer, one of the suspects demanded money from the safe. The employee said it was on a time delayed lock. The suspect pistol-whipped the woman several times and demanded she open the safe anyway. The employee pointed at the time-lock and told the suspect to look for himself. At that point both suspects fled the scene in a tan, mid-sized four-door vehicle with a sun roof.
The first suspect was a black male, 20-25 years old, about 5’7” with a goatee. He wore a faded Carhartt-type jacket and carried a black revolver.
The second suspect was a black male, 6’, carrying a sawed-off pump action shotgun. He wore a tan jacket.
