LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln police are searching for two men they say used machetes and other weapons to rob a computer store.

Employees at Computer Hardware on the city’s east side say the men entered the business Wednesday morning and left with iPads, laptops and cash. They reportedly had two machetes, an extendable baton and a stun gun.

Capt. David Beggs tells the Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1cahkvs ) the men wore masks and tied up the three employees inside. None of them were hurt.

The suspects fled on foot and remain on the loose as of Wednesday afternoon. Lincoln Public Schools spokeswoman Mary Kay Roth says nearby schools have secured their perimeters and locked front doors as a precaution.

Police and the Nebraska State Patrol are searching the area by foot and air.
