Columbus Police Patrol responded to a robbery alarm in the 400 block of S. High Street on March 28, 2023. A disturbance had erupted when two restaurant patrons became upset over their order. Demanding more cheese, the two suspects cornered one employee ripping her hat off. The other employees came to the aid of their co-worker and a fight ensured. One of the suspects pulled a gun while the other suspect repeatedly stated “shoot them”. Witnesses reported the gun misfired. The suspects then proceeded to ransack the restaurant throwing chairs and trash cans. The suspects also took a cellphone from a person on scene. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle without their extra cheese. Please see attached photos of the suspects. Det. Phillip Thomas is the investigating detective.
