Officers responded to a Subway sandwich shop at 7900 Beach Blvd. around 11:50 p.m., according to a statement from the Buena Park Police Department.

The establishment is located less than one block north of Knott's Berry Farm.

Surveillance footage shows two men entering the fast-food restaurant and brandished firearms at the cashier employee, demanding cash.

The men fled with an undisclosed amount, police said, and possibly drove north on Beach Boulevard in a dark-colored vehicle.

The suspects are described as African-American men in their 20s. They were seen wearing face masks and dark clothing.

No injuries were reported in relation to the incident.

Gil Ficke, owner of the Subway franchise, said the incident was frightening but the employee did exactly what he was supposed to.

"It’s a small business. We don’t carry a lot of cash," Ficke said. "I think it’s terrible that these things are happening in our neighborhood.”

Two other armed robberies were recently reported in the same area, but in each of those the suspect worked alone and was described only as a white man.

On April 3, a masked gunman entered a Little Caesars Pizza in the 7900 block of Dale Street, about a mile east of the Subway. The man successfully extorted cash from the employees, who were unharmed, officers said.

A white man also robbed a Buena Park Domino's Pizza on March 30, authorities said.

Anyone with information about the crime can contact Buena Park Police at 714-562-3901.
