    It was just before 9:00 p.m. Wednesday night, when two men, armed with handguns, came storming into Jake's Hamburgers on Kirkwood Highway in Elsmere, Del.

    Delaware State Police say one man came through the front door and vaulted the counter, while the second man rushed in through the back door.

    Two employees and two customers were forced to lie on the ground, according to police, who say another employee was forced to open up the register and hand over the cash inside.

    After grabbing the money, the men forced the workers and customers to lie on the ground and tied their hands behind their backs with zip ties.

    Police are asking anyone with information to call Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333 or to submit a tip online at
