HOUSTON - Employees at DaddyO's Pizza at 5009 Antoine Drive were terrorized by three men during a robbery.

The owner's daughter said the assailants walked into the store in hoodies, first pretending to be customers.

The armed robbers can then be seen on surveillance video striking the employees with a chair. A woman and man can also be seen hitting the robbers with a chair in an attempt to fight back.

The robbers were able to get away with all the money from the register. They also broke the owner's shoulder.

The owners of the restaurant said the establishment will be closed until further notice.

"As most of our valued customers know we are family owned and operated," DaddyO's Pizza said in a statement posted to their Facebook page. "Due to these unfortunate circumstances we have temporarily closed our doors. When we are healed and ready we will return to do what we love most. Please bare with us during this time. We love all our customers and appreciate the support we have received for 20 years!"

The owners of the restaurant said they will be prepared next time someone tries to rob them.
