Police in the Magic Valley are searching for two suspects in an overnight armed robbery at a Twin Falls restaurant.

Police responded to "La Fiesta" on the 12-hundred block of Blue Lakes boulevard around  2 a.m.
Police say an employee and his girlfriend were locking up the restaurant when two people, a male, and a female, approached them.

The man showed a handgun and demanded money.
The female suspect then demanded the woman's keys and phone.
The two suspects took off heading east and ditched the phone and keys.
A k-9 officer was able to track them to a nearby parking lot and then lost their trail.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Twin Falls Police.
