Salisbury Police Department investigators are looking for a man who robbed employees at a local restaurant at gunpoint Sunday.
Employees of Lone Star Steakhouse were taking trash out at the 215 Bendix Drive restaurant at 11:30 p.m. Sunday when a man approached them brandishing a silver, revolver-type handgun.
“The suspect forced them into the restaurant,” Salisbury Police Chief Mark Wilhelm said.
The employees were not harmed. The suspect took cash and ran out the door.
