Deputies: IHOP customers, employees robbed at gunpoint

Volusia County deputies are looking for three men they said robbed customers and employees at an IHOP late Friday night.
Deputies said three men barged into the restaurant on Dirksen Drive around 11:30 p.m. Friday night, armed with guns.
The men, who were wearing bandanas and hooded sweatshirts to conceal their faces, ordered the employees and customers into a freezer and took their wallets and cell phones, deputies said.
During the robbery, one employee was ordered to open the safe, but she could not access it.   Deputies said another employee was shoved around by one of the robbers, but was not injured.
Deputies said they responded and did a search with K-9s and a helicopter, but were unable to find the men.
Two cars were seen behind the restaurant at the time of the robbery and deputies said those two cars may have been involved.
Deputies are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-TIPS.
