The robbery occurred about 1 a.m. this morning at the Hollywood Palms Eight Liners at 3655 N. Beach Street.
Lt. Paul Henderson, a police spokesman, said a 22-year-old security guard was outside when he saw two men walking toward the business. Fearing they were up to no good, the guard went inside and attempted to the lock the door but the men pushed their way inside, Henderson said.

The men then fled., Henderson said.
