3 Suspects Rob Chipotle; Employee Injured

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia police have released surveillance pictures of a robbery at a Columbia Chipotle restaurant.

The crime happened about 10 p.m. Tuesday at the store on Gervais Street in the Vista. 

According to police, the restaurant had just closed when three men came to the building, and approached employees as they were outside. One of the suspects threw a male employee to the ground and hit him in the face. 

That victim was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries. 

Officers say one of the three also pointed a gun at a female employee, demanded money, and held the other employees against their will until they got the cash.

The suspects then left the store. 

Anyone with information on who these men may be should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
