STANFORD - A suspect in a ski mask escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash Monday night after walking into Pizza Hut with a gun and demanding money from a waitress and assistant manager.
The assistant manager described the man as short, under 5 foot, 5 inches tall, very thin, wearing street clothes and a ski mask. She said he was a foreigner, judging by his voice.
"If he hadn't been pointing a gun at me, I could have kicked his butt," said the assistant manager, who wanted to remain anonymous. "But when somebody points a gun at you, you give them what they want."
The robbery occurred at 10 p.m., a few minutes before closing, said the employee.
According to reports, the suspect walked into the restaurant and pulled the gun. The waitress screamed and drew the notice of the assistant manager as the suspect told them he was not joking and wanted the money from the register.
