Armed robbers bind Burger King employee, assault another

Employees of a Burger King on North Division were confronted by three armed robbers at closing time early today with one employee being bound by duct tape and another assaulted.

The employees were finishing up their closing work about midnight when a worker was confronted at the garbage bins by the three robbers, KHQ reported. That worker was bound with the tape.

Police later today said it was not clear whether two or three robbers were involved.

The robbers then went into the restaurant at 1723 N. Division St. with weapons and demanded money. One employee was assaulted, but the wounds were not serious. A gun and knife were displayed.

The robbers fled on foot west through an alley. A K-9 was unable to follow a trail.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
