Allegedly armed with knives, two men are still on the loose Thursday evening. They robbed the Waipahu Town Center's Longs Drugs in the early morning hours.
The robbers reportedly threatened employees with weapons and got away with cash.
"All of a sudden, a guy just a split second came and told me open it," said cashier May Reyes. "I opened the door and he said give me everything."
In the overnight hours, at around 3:30 a.m., two men threatened Reyes, a cashier at station 1 in Long Drugs. She says a man demanding money came up behind her with a knife.
Another man stood close by the register, also holding a knife.
Reyes did what she's trained to do, handing him all the cash in the register -- about $350 worth. But, he wanted more -- something she couldn't give him.
"I said I don't have the key. He said I give you five seconds and I said I don't have the key. He repeated again. I said I really don't have the key," said Reyes.
Reyes says as she was yelling, a couple of her co-workers came over to try and help her, but she says one of the suspects pointed a knife at them and told them to back off.
She says the men eventually left. Investigators say the two men were caught on surveillance cameras scattered throughout the store and will be checking the footage.
The men used bandanas to cover their faces. Officers also tried to get fingerprints and any other evidence off the cash register and floors.
Reyes' husband showed up during her shift to console her.
"She's shaking right now. So, my daughter and my son-in-law is coming over to give her a ride," said Elpi Reyes. "She don't think she can drive, so I said just relax there."
The men were last seen running toward Koa Pancake House and then to McDonald's. No one was injured.
Police say the men were both wearing dark long sleeved shirts. One man had shorts on and the other had long pants. Both of them were about 5-feet-4-inches-tall with medium builds.
