Elizabethtown police search for robbery suspects

ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WECT) - Officers with the Elizabethtown Police Department are searching for two suspects who robbed the No 1 Chinese Restaurant Tuesday night around 10:30 p.m., according to police.

Officers arrived at the restaurant for a report of a 911 hang up; however, when they arrived they learned that the restaurant had just been robbed at gunpoint.

Police say 911 was called during the robbery, but the phone was dropped before talking with dispatch when one of the suspects approached the employee placing the call.

Officers were told that two black males had entered the restaurant through the rear door when an employee had gone to take the garbage outside.

The suspects took two cash registers and fled the scene on foot traveling toward Dunham St.

The first suspect was described as a black male, 20 to 22-years-old, slim build, 140 to 150 pounds, five-foot-eight to five-foot-nine, dressed in all black with a black hoodie, facemask, and gloves.

The second suspect was a black male, 20-22 years old, 5'6" - 5'7", and dressed in all black.

No one was injured and no arrests have been made.

If you have any information, please contact the Elizabethtown Police Department at (910) 862-3125.
