Employees foil robbery at Covina KFC

COVINA — A gunman fled empty handed after two employees locked him out of the store mid-crime early Saturday, officials said.
Two employees were taking out the trash just before 3 a.m. at KFC on Grand Avenue at Covina Boulevard when they were approached by the would-be robber, Covina police Sgt. Rob Bobkiewicz said.
“He pulled a gun on one of them. He told them to get inside the store,” the sergeant said.
But when the gunman paused to look around, apparently to see if anyone was watching, the employees ran back into the restaurant and locked the doors, Bobkiewicz said.
The armed man knocked on the door and demanded the employees open it, but they refused and called police, he said. The gunman fled.
Police described the would-be robber as a black man between 25 and 30 years old, about 6 feet tall, of thin build, with a beard. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, and carried a semi-automatic handgun.
