Restaurant robbed at gunpoint

by Sandy Brundage

A man walking into the Quiznos restaurant on Santa Cruz Avenue on election night wasn't there to order a sandwich or to talk politics — he wanted money, and backed up the demand with a gun.

Police are still searching for the suspect, described as approximately 5 feet 9 inches, 165 to 175 pounds, and possibly Caucasian. He wore dark clothing and a white shirt accessorized with a full mask, according to a press release.

A witness told police it looked like the suspect jumped into a dark-colored Ford Mustang that pulled out of a parking lot, and took off southbound on El Camino Real.

The shop had no customers when the robbery occurred around 6:15 p.m.; the man grabbed money from the cash register and ordered the employees into a back room. No one was hurt.

Menlo Park police ask that anyone with information about the robbery call detectives at (650) 330-6300.
