LA MESA (CNS) - A La Mesa steak house was robbed at knifepoint early Friday and an employee suffered a minor injury in a fight with the masked bandit, authorities said.
An employee of the Riviera Supper Club at 7777 University Avenue was closing out a cash register around 1:20 a.m. when he was approached from behind by a man with a knife, according to a La Mesa police statement.
The suspect demanded cash, and a physical altercation ensued. The employee was pushed to the floor as the suspect grabbed money from the register, police said.
The employee suffered a laceration to his hand but did not require medical treatment, police said.
