When employees refused to hand over money, a fight broke out in the kitchen of the fast-food restaurant in the Miami suburb of Perrine, WPLG reported.

Miami-Dade Police Department spokesman Christopher Sowerby-Thomas said the women entered the restaurant just before 5 p.m. The women said they had a gun, but they never displayed a weapon, Sowerby-Thomas told the television station.

A customer's cellphone video of the scuffle was posted to the Only In Dade Facebook page, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Footage showed one woman, dressed in black and wearing a baseball cap, going behind the counter and arguing with an employee before hitting another worker who was on the telephone, the newspaper reported. The second employee fought back.

The video shows a second woman jumping over the counter and throwing punches at an employee, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

After a struggle, the women fled the restaurant without taking any money, Sowerby-Thomas told WPLG.

"There was no money taken, but the incident is being investigated by MDPD Robbery as an attempted strong arm robbery," officer Angel Rodriguez told the Sun-Sentinel.
