MILWAUKEE- The search is on for two men who busted into a local restaurant with guns.
It was the first day on the job for one of the victims. He's hoping Milwaukee police will catch the bad guys soon.
The two guys in hoodies with guns scared customers and employees at JC King's Restaurant -- on 3128 S. 13th St. -- Monday evening. One customer was forced to the ground at gun point, another was kneed in the back.
"I was just surprised," said Jose Gonzalez. "It was my first day on the job and I didn't know what to do."
So Gonzalez did what he was told to do.
"The chef told me to run. Let's get out of here. At the time I didn't know what was going on so I just ran."
Waitress Karina Morales could see what was going on. Her English isn't so good, but by her hand gestures, guns were involved.
"She's like hiding and she just heard the shot, " said Gonzalez
One shot was fired into the ceiling. There's also video of one of the gunmen banging on the cash register as the surveillance cameras capture every moment, including a good look at their faces.
Morales nods her head yes when asked if she is afraid to come to work.
Gonzalez says the bad guys won't keep him from a good job. "I like the job and I'm going to stay here. I'm not going to feel threatened by anything."
You are asked to call Milwaukee police at (414) 935-7360 if you can help solve this armed robbery.
