Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.”
On Sunday, September 25th, 2011, shortly before 3:00 A.M., a male subject walks into the Hamburger Inn located at 115 McCarthy in the Mission Valley and begins to wave around a black handgun while demanding money from the cash register. The subject then fired the weapon towards the general area of the cash register, whereupon one of the employees opened the register and let the man take the money. The subject was last seen walking south on McCarthy where he then entered a vehicle driven by another man and left.
Detectives from the Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons unit obtained surveillance video from the restaurant which shows the subject but further investigation revealed no bullet holes, leading detectives to believe that the weapon fired a blank.
The suspect is described as an Hispanic man in his 30’s, 5’8” to 6’1”, weighing 200-230, with green eyes. He was wearing a hair net. The vehicle that he was a passenger in was dark colored and may possibly be an older model Ford Mustang.
