Help cops identify these Burger King bandits

Police are asking the public to help them identify the gunmen who robbed an Olney Burger King last Sunday.

The robbers entered the Burger King at 101 E. Olney Ave. at 8 p.m. One pointed a silver and black handgun at the employee working the front counter, while the other hurdled the counter, demanded cash from a second employee and removed money from the cash register himself. Several employees exited a rear door, tripping the alarm, while one employee chased the suspects on foot until he lost sight of them at Front and Granger Streets.

The suspects are described as black men, about 20 years old. One had a dark complexion, was 5-foot-6, had plaits or braided hair and wore a white shirt and red baseball cap The other had a light complexion, medium build and sideburns and wore a white t-shirt and blue baseball cap.
