The employees were in the back of the restaurant when the man entered, according to Santa Ana police.

He jumped over the front counter and confronted the employees with a knife demanding cash.

“He’s brazen, Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.  “He always jumps over the front counter.  It’s obvious he’s getting more comfortable.”

The robber was described as a Hispanic man in his 20s, about 6 feet tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, and wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt.

Anyone with information was urged to call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS (1-855-847-6227).
