MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis police are investigating an armed robbery at a Huey's restaurant Monday morning.

Memphis Police say two armed men wearing all black entered the restaurant at Poplar Avenue and Erin Drive at 9 a.m.  and demanded money.

After robbing the business, they ran out the back door and fled in a black Mercury Grand Marquis.

Initial reports indicate at least one robber held a gun to an employee's head.

Stoney Sanderford works across the street and says he watched as cops flooded the shopping center within minutes.

"I saw the cops were coming. They taped everything off. We had no idea what to think," Sanderford said. "Anything can happen anywhere."

Officers canvassed the area but have yet to make any arrests.

No injuries were reported.

Huey's Restaurants later tweeted that the Poplar location would be open at 5 p.m. Monday, and encouraged anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.

Police released surveillance video of the robbery showing two men in an office shoving something into a Hello Kitty bag.
