Officers responded to the armed robbery at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles on Lake Avenue at around 5:40 p.m., Pasadena Police Lt. Marcia Taglioretti told KTLA.
A restaurant cook says the man was instructed to leave after he refused to wear a mask. But not long afterward he returned with a gun and “wasn’t there for the money.”
“The guy just said, ‘Put all the chicken in the bag,'” Robert Gonzalez said to KTLA. “I understand we got some good chicken, but man.”
The man ultimately made off with a couple of orders that had been ready to be picked up, Gonzalez mentioned. Gonzalez stated he noticed the gunman flee in an awaiting vehicle that a woman was driving.
Police said no injuries have been reported and confirmed that only food was stolen.
