Police are searching for two men suspected in the armed robbery of a North Augusta restaurant early Sunday morning.

According to a North Augusta Public Safety report, an employee of the Ruby Tuesday at 1183 Knox Ave. had closed the business about 1:50 a.m. and had gotten in her vehicle when a man approached and forced her out of the vehicle at gunpoint. The employee said the man covered her face with a mask or cloth and forced her to open the building. A second man then appeared, and the two men forced the employee to open the restaurant’s safe and fled with an unknown amount of cash.

The first suspect is black and was dressed in a black or blue hooded sweatshirt. There was no description of the second suspect.

I hate that happened buy why

I hate that happened buy why would a single female be leaving at that hour all alone? Darn 1:50 a.m. What time does that place close? What was this lady thinking? Leaving that late all alone... Something doesn't really sound right here.. Sorry.

whatashame, I am with you. That is so stupid. I am a male. There is no way that I would do that without any security.

Every restaurant and business

Every restaurant and business I've ever worked at that closed after 11pm required everyone who was closing to walk out TOGETHER. If you needed to leave a bit earlier, they'd let at least one other person walk out with you. It's very strange that a place like Ruby Tuesday would have one person there that late. Regardless, I'm glad no one was hurt.

i am almost positive I heard

i am almost positive I heard about this exact restaurant being robbed in the same way about a year ago. i hope they implement some protocol for closing the store! there should always be two people.
