Surveillance video from the Jamaica Island Restaurant, located at 51st and South Halsted in the city's Back of the Yards neighborhood, shows the gunman entering the restaurant around 9 a.m.

He ordered the three workers into the kitchen and forced them to lay on the floor, then locked them in a bathroom.

He threatened to kill all three of the workers several times, the employees said.

The suspect took cash from the restaurant and one of the victims and used a delivery truck to get away.

No one was injured.

Anyone with any information is asked to call police.
