BALTIMORE - The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for any information about the Feb. 2 armed robbery at Mother's Federal Hill Grill.
According to the FBI, four armed men wearing masks entered the restaurant, located at 1113 South Charles St. on Sunday, just before 7 a.m., as employees arrived for work. The men threatened employees and one worker was hit with the butt of a shotgun when unable to open the safe.
"Someone in our community knows who these men are. We need that person to come forward - the information they provide could stop these men from striking again and someone being seriously hurt," said Baltimore FBI Special Agent in Charge Stephen Vogt in a statement.
Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony Batts shared a similar sentiment.
"We will not tolerate violence, in any form at any level," said Batts in a statement. "We will bring every resource to bear against those who would use guns to bring harm to our city. We are incredibly thankful for the assistance of our federal partners as we all work to reduce violent crime."
Anyone with information about the robbery or the robbers is asked to call the Baltimore Division of the FBI at 410-265-8080 or the Baltimore Police Department Metro Crime Stoppers at 410-276-8888.
The FBI stressed that tipsters can remain anonymous, and could receive a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone connected to the crime.
