The Philadelphia Police are hoping the public can help identify three men -- one who wore a monster mask -- who robbed a fast food restaurant in Pennsport on Nov. 15.
According to police, at about 11:50 p.m., three unknown males confronted a 19-year-old male employee near the rear door of a Burger King, located at 1521 South Christopher Columbus Boulevard. The employee was exiting the restaurant to take out the trash.
Police said the men forced the employee back inside where one of the suspects, armed with a baseball bat, approached a second employee, a 46-year-old male, and immediately struck him.
The other two employees, law enforcement officials said, began taking money from a safe.

Police said that after taking an undetermined amount of money, all three suspects fled and were last seen running west on Dickinson Street from Front Street.
Police said the suspect, armed with the baseball bat, is described as a black male, about six-feet tall with a thin build. At the time of the incident, police said, he was wearing a beige mask below his eyes, dark hooded sweatshirt, and black pants with two white stripes.
The race of the second suspect, police said, is unknown as he was wearing a full-face skelton mask, but he was described as being about six-foot tall and having a thin build. At the time of the incident, he wore a light gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
