Police are investigating after a robbery early this morning at a popular poker room in Taylor.

We're told officers were called to Momo's Poker Room around 12:15 a.m. Friday on a report of a robbery. 

The business is off Telegraph and Van Born in a very busy area of town, right near Dearborn.

The business was open late Thursday night for a poker tournament. Police say two men walked in armed, one with a revolver, the other with a semi-automatic gun and took between $1,000 and $5,000 from the establishment.

We're told more than a dozen customers were at the poker tournament to raise money for a VFW post.

Patrons we spoke with say Momo's has been around for at least 6-7 years and they've never heard of this happening before.

Police say they are now searching for two suspects.
