    The driver demanded money, which the employee brushed off as a joke until one of the men attempted to climb through the window.

    She punched him and pushed him away. During the struggle, she removed his mask. She then hid with a coworker and called police. 

    The suspects left southbound on Garnett in a maroon 4-door Toyota with tinted windows and gold trim.

    Police have surveillance video of the suspects. Police believe they will not have trouble identifying the driver.

    No money was stolen and police say drive-thru robberies are difficult to pull off.
