Detectives are looking for two suspects caught on surveillance video robbing a Burger King at gunpoint.

It happened at 4:40 a.m. Tuesday morning at the Burger King located at 3575 East Bay Dr. in unincorporated Largo.

According to authorities, two suspects armed with a handgun entered the store, climbed over the counter and forced the restaurant manager into the office at gunpoint before demanding access to the safe and obtaining cash.

They left the restaurant heading west on foot.

They are described as two black males wearing long sleeve black shirts, black pants, black shoes, black cotton ski masks, and gloves on their hands.

One is described as 5'10" tall with a thin build and armed with a handgun, while the second suspect was described as being slightly shorter than the first.

Detectives believe the same suspects are responsible for five additional robberies at Burger King Restaurants in Pinellas Park and Tampa, between June 30 and September 29.
