A couple of fast food workers went back to work a day after surviving a terrifying robbery the night before.
Muhlenberg Township police said armed robbers forced a worker into a freezer at the KFC and then got away with cash.
Around 10:40 Wednesday night a worker was taking out the trash when he said three robbers broke in.
James Gearhert is left with a mark on his neck after his frightening ordeal.
"After Jecksan came got me he said, 'you're bleeding.' I'm bleeding. He said, 'Yeah, you got a cut on your neck.'"
Gearhert said he got this cut from one of the armed robbers Wednesday night. As he was taking out the trash out the back door he said someone grabbed him.
"I didn't really know how to react at first so I sprung my arms forward and that's when the knife was put to my neck," said Gearhert.
He said he was taken inside and thrown onto the ground in the freezer.
"I guess it was cold so I turned my face and I saw he had a red bandana and a long blade," said Gearhert, "And then he says don't look back or I'll cut you."
His co-worker, Jecksan Rosato, said he was able to sneak outside in the dark and called 9-1-1.
"It's just flashback," said Rosato, "It's like I'm putting my life in danger."
The fast food workers across 5th Street Highway at the Checkers said they're concerned about security.
"Since that's right near here that could happen here," said Sarah Ocasio, "So, we're definitely going to take more precaution now after dark. Especially make sure we look out. I used to work over there before and I remember there weren't cameras. And I was a little scared to work there."
But these KFC workers said their concerns won't stop them from clocking in.
"Kind of scared, I don't know if something like that might happen again," said Gearhert, "I got keep working, I guess. I have to pay off my car, help my family."
This is the second time in less than two weeks something like this has happened. A worker at the Mount Penn Subway was tied up and put in the icebox. Police have not said if these two incidents are related.
