Silent Witness asks public to help identify 2 suspected of robbing Tempe restaurants

TEMPE, AZ - Silent Witness is asking for the public's help to identify two men suspected of robbing three restaurants in Tempe.

Between Friday, Sept. 27 and Sunday, Oct. 13, the suspects, covering their faces with masks or bandanas and carrying long rifles or handguns, robbed the Long John Silvers near Broadway Road and Priest Drive, the Carl's Jr. near Southern Avenue and Longmore, and two Burger Kings, one near Broadway Road and Priest Drive and the other near Broadway Road and McClintock Drive.

According to the report, one suspect during the robberies orders an employee to open the register, while the other suspect watches the other employees and customers who are either sent to the floor or the back of the building.

Shots were fired in three of the robberies, but no injuries were reported, according to Silent Witness.

After two of the robberies, the suspects fled in a four-door white car.

The suspects are described Hispanic males around 25 to 30 years old.

He has a tear drop tattooed on his left cheek with three dots above it and a cross on his left wrist as well as more tattoos along his arms. He was reportedly wearing a hoodie, dark pants and gloves, Nike sandals with socks and an orange or yellow bandana over his face.
