Kilgore restaurant employees robbed at gunpoint; suspects on loose

GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Detectives with the Gregg County Sheriff's Office are investigating the robbery of four restaurant employees early Saturday.

According to a press release, deputies responded to Rudy's Taco, located at 1895 Old Highway 135 South, in reference to a robbery. A man said two black men robbed him and his three employees at gunpoint while he was closing his restaurant. The suspects were wearing dark clothing and concealed their identity.

The suspects took multiple items and cash from the restaurant and employees before running off. The manager said he saw two white cars leave the area from across the road and thought those cars may have the suspects involved. A juvenile had to be taken to a hospital for injuries after being struck by one of the suspects.

Anyone with information on the case is urged to call the sheriff's office at 903-236-8438.
