In a press release, Sheriff Randy Hoenisch describes the first suspect as a 5'10" man with a stocky build. He was wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt, a dark t-shirt underneath, khaki pants along with a green and red Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ski mask.

The second suspect is a 5'11" man with a slender build. He wore a dark hooded sweatshirt, baggy, dark pants, black Nike Airwalk shoes with a silver or grey design and a black ski mask.

According to the same release, the suspects were inside the restaurant when the employees arrived at work around 6:00 in the morning. One suspect was armed with a handgun. The suspects then duct taped the employees' hands and ankles and demanded an undisclosed amount of money.
