Two armed robbers robbed a New Jersey Target in Union Township after the store had closed on Black Friday, and now police are questioning whether they had help.

The two men blended in with a Vauxhall store filled with Black Friday shoppers, and hid in the bathroom until the time was right to make their move. reported that the suspects forced three employees into the cash room and tied them up after the store had closed. The masked men stole an undisclosed amount of money and left before the other store employees realized what had happened.

One employee wondered whether the suspects had gotten inside information. “You would think that somebody would have to know the right time to come, and the right time that they would be pushing the cash to the safe,” the employee said, according to CBS New York.

A shopper from the Bronx added, “It has to be someone who works there who gave out some kind of information knowing what it was all about.”

Union Township saw another robbery on Saturday night as a Harbor Freight Tools store was also robbed, according to Inquisitr. Four armed men tied up five employees after the store closed and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robberies were similar, but Union Township police do not believe they were related. No one was injured in either robbery, and the suspects are still at large.
