HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

At least six police units were sent to a North Huntsville business to investigate a robbery Friday evening.

It happened at JJ Fun & Recreation on the 2000 block of North Memorial Parkway after 5 p.m.

Investigators said three men with handguns wearing masks, entered, pushed a bouncer out of the way, and began taking cash from the register.

An employee with an ATM company was putting money into a machine and was also robbed, according to a police report.

One of the robbers wore the typical black ski mask, but the other two were reportedly wearing Halloween-style masks including a werewolf's head and a skull.

Officers estimated the robbers spent about three minutes inside the business before walking out. 

No injuries were reported. A K-9 unit was brought to the scene to assist in locating the suspects.

No one has been arrested at this time. The owners and witnesses said they won't sleep easy until the robbers are behind bars.
