(KSL News) Police say two men pulled off two robberies in a short amount of time.

"To rob an eating establishment where there's customers is pretty brazen," law enforcement officers said.

Early this morning, two masked men robbed a Taylorsville restaurant at 4700 South Redwood Road at gunpoint. It only took about 15 seconds to do it.

Sgt. Vaughn Allen of the Taylorsville Police Department said, "Two males had entered the establishment. At least one brandished a handgun and demanded money out of the till."

The men both had something wrapped around their faces. At least one had a silver handgun. As soon as they got the money, they took off.

Police believe these same men robbed a West Valley gas station an hour before they robbed the restaurant.

The men are still on the run, possibly driving a silver two-tone Nissan with a black top and a broken left tail light.
