Armed robber storms into restaurant demanding cash in Northwest Fresno

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A scary moment for people enjoying their Christmas Eve dinner at Kar-Wah restaurant in Northwest Fresno when a man ran in with a handgun and demanded money from the cash register.

The armed suspect entered the business near Shaw and Marks around 7:30 p.m. on Monday.

Fresno police officers say he was wearing all black and had part of his face covered when he held the employee at gunpoint and demanded cash.

"We don't get a lot of robberies from restaurants so I think this is a big shock for them," said Lieutenant Jerardo Chamalbide.

The suspect was last seen running down Marks wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

It's not clear how much cash they took off with from the business.

No one was injured during the armed robbery.
