Police hunt two who tied up Target employees, grabbed cash

Police in New Jersey are hunting for two suspects who tied up employees at a Target store on Black Friday and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The 40-minute “brazen” heist, according to Union Township Police Lt. Robert Perez, took place at the Springfield Avenue store in the evening.

Perez said the two men hid in the store and waited for it to close before forcing an employee into the cash room at gunpoint, NJ.com reports.

Two other employees also walked into the room and were tied up by the armed robbers. The men fled the store with cash without any other workers noticing, Perez added.

Witnesses told CBS New York that the men escaped through a back door where a getaway car was apparently waiting for them.

The robbery was reported after the employees untied themselves, NJ.com reports.
