SAN BRUNO -- A gun-wielding man in a Harley-Davidson jacket escaped in a Prius after holding up a Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant Monday, police said.
The armed man pulled a gun on an employee around 3:35 p.m. in the restaurant inside the shopping center at 1270 El Camino Real and demanded money, San Bruno police Sgt. Dermot Downes said. The robber escaped out the front doors with an undisclosed amount of cash and no one was hurt.
Police searched the area but the man apparently got away in a newer, silver Toyota Prius. Witnesses got part of the license plate number, 6VWX, Downes said. The suspect was a white man in his mid-40s who wore a black baseball cap, a black jacket with a Harley-Davidson logo on the back and white or gray stripes on the sleeves.
This isn't the first time the San Bruno Chuck E. Cheese's has been robbed. In July 2008 a worker left a door ajar after closing time so an accomplice could get in and hold up the restaurant. About a year later the robber was sentenced to two years in prison, prosecutors said.
Anyone with information about the robbery can call San Bruno police at 650-616-7100.
