Gunmen rob 3 people at Long Reach theater

Two theater employees and a friend were robbed at gunpoint by two men at 1:50 a.m. yesterday as they left after closing, county police said.

The two robbers, both armed with guns, approached the victims outside of the front door of Loew's Columbia Palace Nine Theater in the 8800 block of Centre Park Drive in Long Reach, police said.

The robbers forced the victims back inside the building before demanding cash from the assistant manager.

The victims were then ordered into a bathroom while the robbers fled with an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

The employees waited several minutes before leaving the bathroom and contacting authorities.
