    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Both employees and customers of the Red Lobster on Markham St. were robbed at gunpoint Monday night.

    "Well I had just clocked out," said William Woodley, an employee.

    Woodley said one of the suspects forced him back inside at gunpoint.

    "As he was walking me back in he asked me whether I thought there was any money in there.  I said yes. There is probably money in there." said Woodley.

    Police said that four male suspects were waiting in a vehicle outside the restaurant before the robbery happened.

    The suspects took money out of the ticket books from two employees at that time, then two suspects made one of the employees go to the manager's office. The other two men gathered everyone else in the restaurant into the main eating area and forced them to get on the floor.

    After telling everyone to lie on the floor, Woodley said a couple of the suspects then moved into the restaurant's office.

    "They got in there and took the money out of the office," said Woodley.

    Police said one of the suspects had a 9mm handgun with a chrome barrel.
