NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Metro police are looking for two masked gunmen who robbed a Cracker Barrel restaurant early Wednesday morning.
It happened shortly after Midnight at the eatery on Percy Priest Drive off Stewart's Ferry Pike in Donelson.
The manager told police she was approached in the parking lot as she was leaving the restaurant by a woman armed with a pistol. She was forced back into the restaurant by the woman and a man, also armed with a pistol.
Two employees were inside finishing up work at the time.
No one was hurt.
The suspects got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Both suspects are said to be in their 30s. The male is described as Caucasian, approximately six feet, two inches tall, weighing 180 pounds. The female is also described as Caucasian, approximately five feet, four inches tall, weighing 120 pounds.
Investigators are looking at surveillance video to get a better description and more information on the suspects.
The armed robbery is the second of a Cracker Barrel restaurant in nearly three weeks.
On July 8, Cracker Barrel on Steele Road, near the U.S. 31W and Interstate 65 interchange in Franklin, Kentucky, was robbed.
Franklin Favorite reported a maintenance man was confronted in the parking lot shortly before 5 a.m. as the restaurant was opening.
The suspects' descriptions of race, age, height and weight are the same.
In the Franklin robbery, both suspects were also masked and armed.
Unlike the Donelson robbery, employees were tied up before the suspects got away with cash.
The two restaurants are 49 miles apart.
Metro police would not confirm if the two robberies are related.
Anyone with information on either robbery is urged to call Metro Crime Stoppers 74-CRIME or Franklin, Kentucky Crime Stoppers at 270-781-CLUE.
