The three armed suspects entered the Denny's restaurant at the above address.  Two of the suspects immediately confronted the customers and demanded their property, while the third suspect forced an employee at gunpoint to open a safe.  After taking cash from the safe and the register, the suspects fled the scene in a dark-colored, two-door vehicle waiting in the parking lot.
