‘Gun Free’ Restaurant Robbed By Bad Guys With Guns

May 22, 2014 by  

The Pit Authentic Barbeque restaurant in Durham, North Carolina, has a specialized “No Weapons/No Concealed Firearms” sign prominently displayed at its entrance. The armed robbers who terrorized workers in the restaurant’s kitchen Sunday night didn’t seem to notice.

ABC 11 News reported (emphasis added):

Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor.

The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured.

“They’re doing great,” restaurant owner Greg Hatem said. “One of them actually went to the hospital and was released. They took a good look at him, he’s fine.”

Hatem also said there were a few patrons in the dining room while the robbery was happening in the kitchen area. Workers were able to ask them to leave, and got them out safely through the front door.

“We’re offering $2,000 for the arrest and conviction of these guys,” Hatem said. “We take this very seriously. We want to make sure our guests and our staff are taken care of.”

Here’s a photo of the sign provided by the North Carolina Gun Blog:

The blog also reported that The Pit’s owner operates several restaurants through a company called Empire Eats.

“[H]is original ‘The Pit Authentic Barbecue’ in Raleigh was the host restaurant for Gabby Giffords’ anti-gun carpetbagger tour last July. They lied to us back then and said ‘We host all sorts of political functions. We don’t mean to take sides,’” the blog said.
