PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Police in Providence responded to reports of a robbery at the Khoo Kitchen on Charles Street late Friday night around 11 p.m.

Police tell Eyewitness News that two men entered the restaurant, with one carrying a machete and threatening a clerk to give them money.

A witness told police that the man then knocked everything off the counter with the machete in his hand, attempting to rob the place.

The men could not get the cash register open, and after quite some time eventually fled from the scene.

Police said both men were light skinned with thin builds.

One was wearing a black jacket, blue hoodie, black sneakers and a bandana.

The other was wearing black jeans.

Police are still searching for the suspects and are reviewing surveillance video.

No one was injured.
