Suspects in San Carlos restaurant robbery remain at large 

Two men who robbed a San Carlos restaurant as it was closing on Thursday night remain at large, sheriff’s officials said.

Deputies responded to a report of an armed robbery at a Baja Fresh restaurant at 240 El Camino Real shortly before 9 p.m., sheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt said.

Restaurant staffers told deputies two men had entered the restaurant as they were closing for the day, Rosenblatt said.

One of the men allegedly aimed a handgun at the manager, took out money from the cash register and ordered her to an office to open a safe, according to Rosenblatt.

The other man reportedly ordered an employee to the ground and stole his wallet, she said.

The manager was not able to open the safe and both men fled the business on foot through the back door and into a rear parking lot, Rosenblatt said.

No customers were inside the restaurant at the time of the robbery and no injuries were reported, she said.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to call San Mateo County Sheriff’s Detective Jon Sebring at (650) 363-4057.
