SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – San Diego police officers are searching for a suspect who stormed inside a local restaurant overnight. Police said the suspect, who was wearing a mask, was armed with a gun and demanded money and all the personal belongings from the employees, then fled the scene.

San Diego police said two employees were robbed by an armed suspect who entered Mimi's Café in Mission Valley through the backdoor. Officers said the suspect confronted the workers with a handgun and demanded cash as they were closing up the restaurant shortly before midnight. 

Reports indicate that he may have gotten away with wallets and cell phones. However, police don't know how much money he stole. 

The suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 30 years old, 5’10” tall with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black bandana over his face, a black hoodie and dark jeans 

Police will work Monday to determine if there is surveillance video at any surrounding stores, including Verizon, Sleep Train and David's Bridal.

Mimi's Cafe in Mission Valley was set to reopen at 7:00 a.m. Monday.
