Daring Restaurant Robbery

Escambia County sheriff's deputies in Pensacola are looking for the suspects that tied up a restaurant worker that used his nose to dial 9-1-1 after the thieves left.

The victim was at a bar-b-q restaurant by himself after hours Wednesday.

Sheriff's Capt. Joel Mooneyham says one of the suspects was armed with a silver revolver. The two men wore camouflage clothing and may have left with a third person in a blue crew-cab pickup truck with four doors.

Mooneyham says the suspects used plastic zip ties to tie the employee, waited 10 minutes for a time-delay safe to open, and spoke with an accomplice over a two-way radio. They then escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.

The victim had to hop to the door to open it for a deputy after he made the call with his nose on a touchtone phone.
