Tulsa Police are investigating an overnight armed robbery outside an East Tulsa Applebees restaurant.
It happened at the location near 41st and Garnett around 12:30 a.m.
Police said three people were in the parking lot by an employee's car. Two of the people worked at Applebees, and the third person was a friend. The workers were closing down the restaurant for the night.
A man in his early 20s wearing a black and white bandana over his face reportedly approached the group with a black semi-automatic pistol.
Police said the man took cash from each person and a cell phone from one of them.
He ran off, past a hotel next door .
"We have officers over at apartment complexes to the west just to see if he's out walking," said Sgt. Darren Bristow.
No one was hurt in the exchange.
