Police are on the hunt for two men accused of robbing several El Torito employees at gunpoint early this morning, reports the OC Register.

The employees were allegedly on their way out of the restaurant in Brea at the end of their shifts when they were approached by two masked men, ordered back inside the restaurant and forced to hand over thousands of dollars in cash.

No one was hurt. Anyone with info is asked to call Brea police at 714-990-7624.
