SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Thanks to the help of some patrons, two men were in custody Monday on suspicion of robbing a KFC restaurant in Linda Vista, police said.
The armed robbery at 7049 Eastman St. was reported shortly before 8 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.
Witnesses outside the business' drive-through window reported seeing one of the men jump over a counter and threaten a clerk. The assailants then fled in a gray sedan, which the drive-through patrons followed, Delimitros said.
Police caught up to the gray sedan and stopped it, Delimitros said, noting that evidence from the robbery was found inside the vehicle and the two men inside were arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.
