According to police, the incident happened at the King Buffet in the 2400-block of Oakland Avenue in White Township around 2:50 p.m.
The suspects have been identified as Jeremia Fromme, 22, of Ernest, and Adam Wilson, 26, of Indiana.
The two suspects entered the restaurant and Fromme approached the counter. At that time, Fromme handed over a note demanding money. He then told the cashier, “Just do it, just do it.”

“Our niece was opening the cash register,” King Buffet owner Bin Zheng said. “And he grabbed the money out and then when I came out he tried to run.”
The cashier hesitated and Fromme lifted his shirt. The cashier believed Fromme had a gun and handed over an undisclosed amount of money.
