Menlo restaurant robbed at gunpoint

 

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 described the man as approximately 5'9", 165 to 175 pounds, 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.

Anyone with information about the robbery can call Menlo Park detectives at 650-330-6300.
