Jonesboro police said four suspects who attempted to rob a KFC ended up fleeing the scene with nothing.

Police said it happened at the KFC/Taco Bell, 2003 West Parker Road, late Monday night.

According to the police report, two black males walked into the restaurant through the back door, pulled out a gun, and told an employee to get in the freezer.

Another employee said one of the suspects then walked up to him and pointed the gun at him.

The employee told police the suspect seemed scared or nervous because he was "shaking with the gun extended pointing at him."

The employee then added a third suspect came in the store and he and another suspect tried to get the employee to go into the freezer.

The employee and the third suspect began to argue when two of the other men turned and ran off.

Police said no employees were hurt in the incident.

The report says three of the four suspects are believed to be between the ages of 16-19, while the fourth suspect is believed to be at least 18 years or older.

If you have any information on this incident, call Crimestoppers at 935-7867 (STOP).
