Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A restaurant in Fargo was Robbed at gunpoint. It happened at the Giant Panda restaurant on Gateway Drive and 13th Avenue.

At about 9:30 last night two males walked through Giant Panda's front doors and told employees behind the register to move so they could get money.

Lt. Joel Vettel: "They approached one of the employees immediately, displayed a handgun."

Lt. Joel Vettel says after one of the men displayed the gun the employees did in fact move out of the way. The two men described as young and dark-skinned, standing about 5'6 to 5'8, one wearing a mask, got into the register and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. The restaurant was open at the time of the robbery, but Vettle says the men were in and out so fast patrons didn't even know a robbery took place.

During the robbery no shots were fired.

Vettel: "We're thankful that things turned out the way they did as far as no one getting hurt and they were in quickly and out quickly, and really at this point again following up on a number of leads and trying to determine exactly who was involved and obviously try to get them into custody."

Police will also be looking into surveillance video to try and track down the robbers.

If you have any information you are asked to call police.
