By rlsmetro on

Police in Newark are looking for a set of dangerous men who pointed a gun at a store employee on Saturday then demanded all the cash from the register.

The middle of the parking lot of a strip mall located at 467 Lyons Avenue separates the city of Newark and The Township of Irvington, and this is where two thieves -who were armed with a gun- reportedly staked out an ordinarily busy portion of the shopping center.

According to store officials, two males swiftly entered the Golden Crust Carribean food restaurant before 10:20 p.m., with one of the men armed with a gun and took cash from the establishment.

The suspects then sprinted from the scene according to store officials.

Officials say the entire incident happened in a matter of minutes and the suspects did not rob any of the other establishments in the strip mall.
