Two masked men sat down at the IHOP, located at 1224 Eisenhower Parkway, just before midnight and pointed a gun at a waitress when she approached them, according to the Macon police.
The robbers forced the waitress to walk to the cash drawer, according to a police news release.
Nervous, the waitress was unable to open the cash drawer, so one of the men took the entire drawer. The men ran away across Eisenhower Parkway toward Ell Street, according to the release.
The robbers are described as being black men, wearing dark pants and black hooded shirts. One man wore a ski mask while the other wore a red bandana over his face, according to the release.
Anyone with information is asked to call the police at (478) 751-7500 or Macon Regional CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
