Two men were charged with robbing a Loyola University Chicago cafeteria early Friday morning.

Rodrick Moore, 31, and Martell Howze, 25, allegedly held two food service workers at gunpoint and forced them to open a safe in the university’s cafeteria in the Damen Student Center, 6511 N. Sheridan Road, according to a Loyola University Crime alert and Chicago Police News Affairs.

Two Aramark employees were exiting the student center shortly after 2 a.m. when they were stopped from behind by an individual with a black handgun, the alert said. The two workers were forced back into the building and into a room where a safe located.

They were instructed to open the safe and the offenders took the contents and fled, according to the alert.

One of the victims gave Campus Safety a description of the suspect, the alert said, and police found the offender while conducting a search of the area.

While the school alert said one offender was suspected in the robbery, a police investigation revealed a second person was involved.

Police recovered the contents of the safe and the weapon used during the robbery, which was identified as a replica.

Moore and Howze were each charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated kidnapping. Moore was also charged with a second count of aggravated kidnapping.
