Police are asking for the public's help in identifying three males caught by surveillance footage accused of robbing a local diner at gunpoint.

According to police, on Thursday, May 25th, at approximately 9:15 p.m., three armed black males entered the Park Avenue Diner, located at 2002 Park Avenue, South Plainfield.

The actors entered the diner through a rear door wearing dark clothing, hoodies, ski masks, all brandishing firearms.

They approached the front counter demanding cash from the register. After receiving the money they fled out the same rear door to an awaiting getaway vehicle parked on Warren Street, described as a small dark colored SUV, which fled down Murray Avenue in a northerly direction toward the City of Plainfield.

An employee of the diner received a minor laceration to his face after he was struck by one of the actors.

Anyone who could provide assistance with this investigation is asked to contact Detective Craig Magnani at 908-226-7682 or Detective Sergeant Garrett Cassio at 908-226-7662 of the South Plainfield Police Department.
