Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md.- Crisfield police are investigating the Monday night armed robbery of two restaurant employees.

Crisfield police said officers were dispatched to a reported robbery that had just taken place at Captain Tyler's Crab House & Restaurant.

Two employees told officers that they were carrying a money bag to their cars when a black male wearing all black clothing and a ski mask showed them a short-barreled shotgun with a pistol grip. According to police, the suspect said, "Give me the money." During a struggle, one of the victims was hit in the head with a shotgun. Officers said the suspect took the bag, the victims' cellphones and their vehicle as a getaway car.

The Somerset County Sheriff's Office was called to assist in the search for the suspect. At around 11 p.m., Crisfield Police Chief Michael Tabor spotted the getaway car parked on Broadway Avenue. Police said a bloodhound was brought to the scene and the vehicle was impounded to look for evidence.

The injured victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury for treatment of cuts to the head and then released. 

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call police at (410) 968-1323. A reward is being offered.
