Police are trying to identify two terrible people who robbed deceased San Antonio hero Jim Hasslocher's house at gunpoint while two of the late Jim's founder's relatives were inside.

News 4 San Antonio reports that Hasslocher's widow and nephew were in the residence when two armed men forced their way in, but they fled after one of the relatives inside was able to dial 911.

Hasslocher died aged 93 on Wednesday, November 19.

A San Antonio Police Department spokesperson told News 4 that the robbers did have time to rummage through the home and took some items with them when they fled.

Hasslocher got into the restaurant business in 1947 and his burgers became part of San Antonio's fabric.
