DeKalb Police are seeking the suspects who robbed the Panera Bread on North Druid Hills Road on Monday.
According to a DeKalb Police report, one of the restaurant's employees arrived at work on Monday at 4:40 a.m. She was standing at the front counter when she heard a loud crash from the north side of the building and seconds later saw two unknown African-American men in all black running into the restaurant.
One of the suspects wore a red bandanna over his face, and the other wore a blue bandanna over his face. The employee said both were armed with handguns.
The suspects demanded the employee open the safe, which she did. However, they also wanted her to open the bottom drawer of the safe, but she did not have access to it. They then locked her in the freezer.
Two other employees said the men tied them up with zip ties and an apron belt, but they were unable to see the suspects.
There was a large hole in the glass door of the restaurant and a large rock on the ground near the shattered glass.
A witness noticed a dark blue Honda Civic driving through the parking lot just before the suspects entered the restaurant.
The nearby Starbucks has surveillance footage of the parking lot, and the restaurant's surveillance cameras captured the entire incident.
According to the report, the suspects made off with $3,500 in cash.
