A Tulsa donut shop was robbed around 7 a.m. Monday, July 2. Workers told News On 6 two masked men with guns robbed them at the Daylight Donuts at 560 North 28th West Avenue - that's near Edison and Gilcrease Museum Road.

The owner's wife and son were in the store, and the woman said she told the robbers, "Please don't shoot me; please don't shoot me." The men had the workers get on the floor and demanded cash.

The robbers got away with cash and two cell phones and one of the manager's credit cards, according to the employees. No one was hurt, and no customers were in the store when it was robbed.

Manager Setiewati Lim said her son kept her from chasing after the robbers, so she did not get a good look at the vehicle they left in.

There also wasn't a good description of the robbers other than that they are two younger men. Police said there were surveillance cameras in the donut shop, so they hope to learn more about the suspects.

Officers said after ripping the phone cord from the wall, the two men left the store and drove off in a white minivan. 

Despite the robbery, everyone got back to work for the day.

"Life is going on. Why should I...my son said, 'Mom, close.' I said, 'No. Why should I close,'" Lim said.
