Lincoln police say two men armed with machetes robbed a computer store near 70th & O Street, Wednesday morning.  The incident happened around 9:15 a.m.  Police say there were no customers present but three employees were tied up.  The men took off with tablets and laptops. 

An employee at a next door business says she saw the men before they entered the electronics' store.  "No, didn't see them carrying anything.  They were pretty much hunched in their coats and stuff; they were just looking at the ground," says Kendra Lienemann at Spectrum Salon Systems.

The men were armed with machetes, a baton and a taser.

Police believe they took off in a green four door sedan.

The state patrol conducted a search with its K-9 units and helicopter.

The men are still at large.

Lincoln police say this incident could be linked to two February cell phone store robberies.

Computer Hardware Inc is located at 235 S. 70th St.
