The men entered the Burger King at the intersection of Ribaut Road and Mossy Oaks Road at 5:15 a.m. Armed with handguns, they bound the employees using zip ties, Cpl. Hope Able said.
A female employee was fondled while one of the men searched her front shirt pocket, according to the report.
The men left the Burger King with $50 and a cellphone. One of the employees was able to free her hands and call police after the men left.
