On December 18, 2006, just before 7:00 A.M., the suspect entered the restaurant in the 1700 block of South La Cienega Boulevard. The suspect jumped over the counter and pointed a handgun at employees, demanding money from the safe. He took an undisclosed amount of money and he ran out of the restaurant.
