SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A Mexican restaurant in Lemon Grove was held up by robbers early Monday morning. 

Authorities reported that one of the suspects was armed with a shotgun and another suspect had a baseball bat. 

Three men, wearing hoodies and each with a mask or bandana covering their face, allegedly burst into the restaurant on Palm Street around 2:30 a.m., armed with a shotgun, bat and hammer. 

According to police, the suspects made the employees open the cash register, took an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot.  

They were last seen heading south toward Cypress Street. 

At least two of the three suspects are suspected in two similar robberies of taco shops in Spring Valley and Lemon Grove in the past two weeks. In all three cases, similar weapons were used.
