    A man armed with a knife attempted to rob a Chipotle restaurant in Mission Valley by dressing up as an employee, police said.

    The attempted robbery – which turned into a double stabbing – happened around 11:35 p.m. at a Chipotle restaurant located at 1025 Camino De La Reina.

    According to police, the 38-year-old suspect dressed up as a Chipotle employee and knocked on the backdoor of the restaurant. The manager let him in and the suspect then took out a knife and told the manager to give him cash.

    The manager grabbed the suspect and a fight ensued, police said. During the struggle, the manager sustained a cut on his hand.

    Other employees jumped in and tried to help, and one employee also suffered a stab wound to the hand.

    Police officers driving past the eatery saw the fight and took the suspect into custody. He was booked into jail for attempted robbery and two charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

    Both stabbing victims were treated at the scene.
