Two masked men stole an undetermined amount of money and forced employees into a walk-in freezer during an armed robbery at a Hagerstown fast-food restaurant late Saturday, according to Maryland State Police.
At about 11 p.m., two black men wearing ski masks and dark clothing entered the Hardee's restaurant at 13108 Pennsylvania Avenue, displayed handguns and announced a robbery, police said.
Employees were ordered to get down on the ground and crawl to the store's walk-in freezer, police said.
The employees, told they would be shot if they left the 10-degree freezer, stayed in for an hour before coming out and calling for help, police said.
