Oklahoma City Police are searching for a man and woman who held two workers at gunpoint and robbed a City Bites restaurant late Tuesday night.

The victims told police the suspects walked into the restaurant at N.W. 21st Street and Classen just before 8 p.m. Both suspects were wearing masks and gloves.

The suspects ordered the employees to walk to the back of the restaurant and open the safe. Once the robbers stole the money, they forced the employees to lie on the floor. One suspect held the gun while the other used duct tape to bind the workers' hands and feet together.

The suspects left the room, and the workers were able to free themselves. They went to the front of the restaurant and discovered the suspects were gone. That's when they called 911.

The victims were not able to identify the suspects, but they did tell police the female suspect seemed to be familiar with the restaurant. They said the suspect knew where to find some light switches that only employees know about.

The robbers got away with an unknown amount of money. Police ask anyone with information about the crime to call the Oklahoma City Police Department.
