A fast-food restaurant in Northeast Baltimore was robbed Saturday night by two men who forced customers to lie on the floor while they took an undetermined amount of cash from registers, police said.

The men entered the KFC restaurant in the 6200 block of Belair Road shortly before 7:10 p.m. One of them brandished a handgun and ordered customers to the floor as his companion acted as lookout, police said. The gunman then jumped over the counter and took money from the cash registers before both men fled through the restaurant's rear parking lot and went south on Marluth Avenue, police said.

No one was injured in the robbery, police said.

The gunman was described as being in his teens or 20s, 5'8" to 5'10" with brown skin and a thin to medium build. He was armed with a silver-colored handgun of unknown caliber. The second robber was described as a black male, also 5'8" to 5'10", wearing blue jeans and a dark hooded sweatshirt with a patch on the shoulder. Both men wore scarves over their faces, police reported.
