SAN MARCOS (CNS) - Two masked men with handguns chased down some fleeing employees and stole $300 from a San Marcos taco restaurant, and are still on the loose, authorities said today.
The men walked into the Pacific Taco restaurant in a small shopping complex at 630 Nordahl Rd. at around 9:30 p.m. Friday, held up their guns and demanded money from the cashier, said San Diego County Sheriff's Sgt. Joe Ellis.
The cashier gave one of the men about $300 while the second man went into the kitchen and confronted the cooks, Ellis said.
The cooks ran out the kitchen's back door, but the armed man chased them and brought them back into the restaurant, Ellis said.
The suspects demanded more money, but when the cooks said there was no more, the men ran away, Ellis said.
Authorities believe they fled the scene in a black pickup truck.
