Taco Bell employees hid themselves in a walk-in freezer early Monday morning after a man tried to rob the restaurant.

Tulsa Police say a man using a brick broke through a window near the drive-thru at around 1:25 a.m.

The restaurant is located near 18th Stree and Garnett Road.

The man then went straight for the cash register, but could not figure how to open it. After finding no employees, he ran out the back door.

Police officers arrived and got the employees out of the freezer unharmed.

The suspect is described as a male wearing blue jeans, a dark, hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a mask. 

Tulsa Police say this robbery attempt may be related to several other restaurant robberies in the Tulsa area.
