An employee of a car wash near Rainbow Boulevard and Russell Road chased down two men Sunday after they robbed his coworker at gunpoint.

The robbery happened around noon at the Alamo Hand Car Wash. Surveillance footage shows two men enter the office and approach an employee. 

"They asked, 'Where's the cash?'" said Angelica Ortez who works at the car wash. 

The employee didn't know where the safe was kept so the armed men took her phone and purse.

Another employee of the car wash tried to chase them, but they got in car and fled. 

Police are still looking for both men.
