Swatara police seek tips in armed restaurant robbery

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are asking for the public’s help to identify two men wanted for the armed robbery of a Swatara Township restaurant.

Investigators released surveillance photos from Lancaster Brewing Company on Eisenhower Boulevard. They say three men armed with handguns and a long gun entered the business through a rear door shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday and robbed several employees at gunpoint.

One of the robbers assaulted an employee by striking them with the long gun, believed to be a small-caliber rifle, police said. They fled in a white four-door sedan, possibly a Hyundai Sonata.
