Two people were arrested Wednesday following an armed robbery at the Tacos El Dorado restaurant at H Street and White Lane.

The robbers struck during breakfast time, with a dining room full of patrons.

Surveillance video provided to Eyewitness News by the restaurant shows the hooded robbers coming in the front door and pointing what appears to be guns at the customers. One robber stayed up front, while the other went to the back with an employee to get money.

The video shows the robber who went to retrieve the money hit a female worker in the head with his pistol.

Police haven't released the names of the robbery suspects.
