    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A popular metro Atlanta pizza restaurant was robbed for the second time this month Friday night, police say.

    Police say armed robbers stormed the Fellini's Pizza in Candler Park on McClendon Road last night and stole nearly $2,000.

    Video shows the two robbers leaving after customers and workers were held up. 

    Restaurant employees gave Channel 2's Michael Seiden the surveillance video, which shows two men walking out of the restaurant loaded with cash and the register and customers scrambling to run away.

    Seiden talked to customers, who are still on edge. 

    "I think it's very scary," one customer said. "It makes us feel unsafe." 

    Atlanta police said this latest robbery happened Friday night just after 10. A security camera on the patio captured the robbers as they entered the restaurant. 

    What happened next wasn't recorded, but a second camera in the parking lot shows the robbers hopping into a white Chevrolet sedan. 

    No one was injured this time, but earlier this month, robbers hurt one employee. 

    On Aug. 5, police say two men walked into the same Fellini's, pointed guns at employees and robbed them. One of the robbers hit an employee with a gun, police said.  None of the employees had access to the safe, so the two took off in a white Chevrolet sedan.

    "They put everybody on the ground and just made everybody sit down," a worker told Channel 2's Audrey Washington. 

    During that robbery, the security cameras were broken and didn't capture the suspects. 

    Police have not said if the two robbers in this case are the same men from the first robbery. 

    A manager told Seiden that they are in the process of adding additional cameras, specifically inside the restaurant. 

    On Saturday night, Atlanta police were patrolling the area.
