SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two armed men allegedly forced two University Avenue restaurant employees to the ground and took their wallets and a cash register Saturday, San Diego police said.
Two men with handguns entered Molca Salsa Mexican Food at 6101 University Ave., about 6:40 a.m. through an unlocked back door, according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.
They forced the two employees to the ground, took their wallets and the restaurant's cash register and got into a black car with a curly-haired female driver, who was waiting about a block away at Rock Street and College Avenue, Cali said.
One suspect was described as a 6-foot-tall black man with a goatee, who weighed about 180 pounds and was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and a red beanie hat. The other was described as a light-complexioned black man who was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black beanie.
A witness provided a license plate number of the car and it was determined to be a stolen 2008 Ford Fusion. The car was later found at 2700 Peyton Place in National City, Cali said.
