(KSL News) It was a frightening experience for the owners of a Mexican restaurant in Salt Lake City. They were robbed by three men with guns and a knife.

The owners of Julia's Mexican Food at 117 S. 1000 West say they were about to open the restaurant when three men approached them.

One of men held up the female owner by putting a knife to her throat.

The other two men had guns and forced the woman's husband into his truck.

They drove for several blocks, took the man's money, wallet, ID, and then kicked him out of the truck.
