Metro police are investigating two separate incidents from Friday night.
Around 11:30 p.m., the owner of the Dragon House East Restaurant was assaulted as he was locking up for the night.
A police report says the victim was carrying the deposit bag when two men knocked him down, kicked him and took off with about $400.
The victim was treated and released for minor injuries.
Police say a man walked in saying he had a gun in his pocket but never showed a weapon.
The clerk handed over the money from the cash register and the man took off.
The suspect is described as a black male, 40-50 years old, 6’2” and about 220 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
