CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Clemson police said they are looking for two men who held up two restaurants in three nights.
Police Chief Jimmy Dixon said on May 14, two armed men entered the Wendy's on Highway 123 at 10 p.m. and ordered two employees to lay down on the floor.
The men stole cash from the safe, took the workers' cell phones then fled, Dixon said.
Then on May 17, two men, also armed with pistols, went to the side door of Little Caesar's in downtown Clemson about 3 a.m., police said. One man went inside and stole some money, Dixon said.
In surveillance video from Little Caesar's, people can see the two men run at two employees leaving work for the night. They point a gun at the manager's head and direct them back inside to get them cash.
Dixon said they believe the same men robbed both restaurants and hope someone will recognize the robbers caught on camera outside of the Little Caesar's.
"We're not immune from armed robbery type crimes, but to have two within a three-night time period is highly unusual in this area," said Dixon.
Police said no one was injured in either robbery.
Dixon said police are offering a cash reward for information leading to the identity of the man in the photo and information leading to arrests and convictions in the cases.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Clemson City police at 864-624-2000.
