SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man walked into a Clairemont Mesa restaurant early Friday and dragged away an automated teller machine, police said.
The theft from Cotixan Mexican Restaurant at 4370 Genesee Ave. was reported just before 5 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.
The man took the machine and loaded it into the back of a maroon hatchback vehicle, possibly a Honda or Mitsubishi, as employees and customers looked on, Cali said in a statement.
He was last seen heading north on Genesee Avenue with the ATM sticking out of the vehicle.
Police described the thief as a man in his mid-30s, who spoke with a Middle Eastern accent. He stood about 6 foot and was wearing a mask and gloves, and a gray sweater and beige pants, Cali said.
