1 injured in Matthews restaurant robbery

Matthews police are looking for two men in connection with Thursday night’s armed robbery of a Chipotle’s restaurant that left one employee with minor injuries.

Police say the two men entered the restaurant, in the Matthews Festival Shopping Center on Matthews Township Parkway near Independence Boulevard, around 10:30 p.m. No customers were in the business at the time, but four employees were there.

According to police, the men demanded money at gunpoint.

Two employees escaped out a back door, but another was injured and needed medical treatment.

Investigators are not sure what the pair used for a getaway vehicle.

Police said one suspect was a black male, 6 feet tall and 250 pounds. He was wearing jeans, a white shirt with a checkered design, purple Nike shoes, a New York Yankees ball cap, and white-framed sunglasses.

The second suspect, also a black male, was 5-11 and 175 pounds, and he is thought to be 20 to 25 years old. He was wearing dark jeans, a red short-sleeved T-shirt with stripes, and a black bandana with a white design. He had shoulder-length dreadlocks or corn rows.

Anyone with information about the robbery or suspects is asked to call Matthews police at 704-847-5555.
