WEST COVINA — A man robbed a hamburger restaurant employee Saturday as she was transporting money from a bank to the business, police said.
The woman, an employee of Five Guys Burgers and Fries, 1455 Plaza Drive in the Westfield West Covina shopping mall, had just withdrawn money from a bank and was exiting her car in front of the restaurant when a robber pushed her to the floor, West Covina police Lt. Tommy Garcia said.
The man snatched the deposit bag, which contained a significant amount of cash, and jumped into a red, square-shaped SUV with a woman at the wheel, he said.
Police described the robber as a black man, 18 to 20 years old, about 6 feet tall and 200 pounds. He wore a gray hooded sweat shirt.
The driver of the getaway car was described as a black woman between 20 and 30 years old, wearing a red bandanna on her head.
