"When I opened the door there were two men robbing the place," Alvarado said through a translator. "One of them was pointing a gun at me, and I was scared so I took a step back and I called 911...I was very scared I thought they were going to shoot us or worse, and thank god nothing happened"

Police said the suspects also took an undisclosed amount of money from the register. 

The first suspect is described by police as a black male adult who was last seen wearing a black jacket with gray sleeves, black pants, a black doo-rag and a has a handgun. 

The second suspect was described as a black male adult who was last seen wearing a black shirt, gray shorts, black beanie and white shoes, police said.
