The hold-up happened about 10:55 p.m. at the eatery at 1118 H St. NE. An employee reported that two men entered the restaurants wearing ski masks and displaying a gun. The suspects then stole cash and fled on H Street NE, according to an email from Metropolitan Police Department First District Captain Antonio Charland.
The suspects were described as two black men wearing dark clothing and ski masks.
There was also an assault about 5 p.m. yesterday at a 7-11 near Eastern Market.
An employee at the 7-11 at 429 8th St. SE reported that he was assaulted after confronting two young men who he believed were shoplifting. When the employee confronted the men, one picked up a yellow “Caution wet floor” sign and hit the employee on the head, according to an email from MPD Assistant Patrol District Commander Mark Beach.
The employee was not seriously injured in the assault and refused medical treatment. Beach said police believe that the two men live in the area and frequent the 7-11 location.
