ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County Police say a restaurant company has offered a $25,000 reward for information leading to suspects in an armed robbery last month.
Chili’s Restaurants is offering the reward through Crime Solvers, which had already offered a $1,000 reward in the crime.
Police say on May 26, two men broke into the Chili’s on Rockville Pike in Rockville as the staff was closing for the night. One suspect had a revolver; the other had a long gun. The robbers ordered the staff into the freezer while the manager was forced to open a safe and give the suspects cash.
During the robbery, two employees were hit with a hammer by one of the suspects.
Police believe the same men robbed a Bob Evans restaurant in Prince Frederick on May 20.
