Police are looking for the gunmen behind a frightening robbery at a Popeye's chicken restaurant.

It happened Sunday evening on Bragg Boulevard right after the business closed. The door was locked, but the robbers got in with a key - meaning it was likely an inside job.

One suspect wore a pig mask and pistol-whipped a worker. The holdup was caught on store surveillance video.

In the video, you can see the two bandits jump the front counter. The one in pig mask is also the one carrying a gun.

The pair took the manager on duty to the back office and made him open the safe, but not before striking him the head a couple of times with the gun.

The bandits then jumped back over the counter, dropped some of the money, scooped it up, and then made their getaway.

Police hope the video helps them catch the crooks.
