SAN ANTONIO – Two men were arrested for robbing a fast-food eatery early Tuesday on the city's Northwest Side, San Antonio police said.

The robbery was reported around 12:30 a.m. at a Jack in the Box at Hillcrest and Bandera Road.

Police said the men were armed and wearing fluorescent orange masks when they walked into the restaurant and demanded cash from a teenage girl and a 20-year-old woman who were working the late shift.

The workers said they were scared because the men asked for the code to the safe, which they didn't know. The pair said they were afraid that the men might shoot them.

The men got some money and took off, but were pulled over by police a couple of miles away at General McMullen and Tulane Road.

Officers said they found the guns and the masks inside the car.

The men were arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, police said.

Police are investigating whether the men also robbed a Shell gas station about 20 minutes before the Jack in the Box robbery.
