A San Diego restaurant was robbed by two armed thieves early Wednesday morning, according to officials.
The Fresh MXN restaurant at the corner of Ashton Street and Morena Boulevard in Bay Park was robbed by the two men at 3:30 a.m.
An employee was preparing food alone and had recently taken out the trash. He left the back door unlocked when two men came in. One of the men had a hand gun - and both ordered the employee to empty the cash register.
The employee handed over the money, but the two suspects also stole the employee's wallet before leaving.
A police spokesman tells us that while the employee was not injured, he is still very shaken by the incident.
San Diego Police detectives are investigating and are asking anyone with information on this robbery to call the San Diego Police Department.
