Willow River, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Authorities are looking for suspects involved in an armed robbery last week at the Corral Bar in Willow River, MN.

On July 4th, officers were called to the scene after two men wearing black ski masks entered the Corral Bar around 1:20AM.

Authorities say one of the men was armed with a handgun and that the suspects allegedly held a lone employee at gunpoint, demanding all the money in the safe.

The employee could not open the safe and was allegedly struck in the head by the armed suspect with the gun. The suspects robbed the bar and then fled the business.

The employee was taken by ambulance to Mercy Hospital and treated for a laceration to her head before being released.

Anyone with information on this robbery or the suspects is asked to call the Pine County Sheriff's Office.
