NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Police are asking for help in locating three suspects wanted in connection with a robbery at a Manhattan restaurant on Saturday.

Authorities said the suspects entered Barbuto Restaurant on Washington Street around 1:30 a.m. and attacked an employee, who was cleaning the restaurant after closing.

One of the suspects put a knife to the victim’s neck as the other two men tied-up and blindfolded him, police said. The suspects attempted to break into a basement safe, but were unable to. Two laptops were taken from the restaurant before the suspects fled the scene, according to authorities.
