At least five guys robbed a Five Guys Burgers and Fries location on Delaware Avenue in North Buffalo on Halloween night, Buffalo police reported.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m. Thursday, the crew of at least five men, most dressed in all black and at least one wearing a Halloween mask, entered the restaurant at 2636 Delaware Ave. Police believe one of the thieves was armed with a gun.

One person in the restaurant was struck in the back of the head, but authorities have not said what instrument was used to strike the person. The robbers took an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing out the back door.

Preliminary reports described all five males as pretty short, between 5 foot 5 and 5 foot 7.
