Two men suspected of robbing a Mexican restaurant earlier this week made their initial court appearances Friday.

Kawan DeShawn Crawford and Kevin DeAndre Hull face more than 30 charges each. Both entered the customary not-guilty pleas during their arraignments.

Two robbers, which authorities believe are Crawford and Hull, struck Wednesday at the Tacos El Dorado restaurant at H Street and White Lane.

Surveillance video provided by the restaurant shows hooded robbers coming in the front door and pointing what appears to be guns at customers during breakfast time. One robber stayed up front, while the other man 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.
