(Hamburg, N.Y.) Town of Hamburg Police are looking for three men who robbed the Outback Steakhouse on McKinley Parkway.

It happened around 10:15pm on Monday night.

As employees opened a back door to throw out garbage, two men - one of them armed with a gun - forced their way into the restaurant.

Once inside, the bandits tied up four employees using tape to bind their hands and feet together.

The suspects were joined by a third man who then helped them take an undetermined amount of cash.

The three robbers fled the scene in a car taken from one of the victim's.

The stolen car was recovered by Buffalo Police in the Maryner Towers housing complex, located in Buffalo's lower west side.

Anyone with information is asked to call Town of Hamburg Police at 648-5118 ext. 2614.
