Man Robs Spokane Valley Restaurant With Gun

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A man armed with a chromed or silver-colored pistol robbed the Rancho Viejo restaurant about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses said the man entered the front doors of the restaurant and waved the pistol around while demanding money. The waitress said she had to get keys to the cash drawer and walked part-way into the kitchen where she told a bus boy to call 911.

He made the emergency call and the 911 operator could hear the suspect yelling threats to the waitress, a cook and two female patrons. While the bus boy watched from the kitchen the suspect tore the cash drawer out of a cabinet and then threw it at the waitress when it contained only coins.

The drawer hit the woman in the arms which she had crossed over her chest. The suspect also struck the cook in the back of the head with the pistol, injuring him slightly.

The robber tore open a second drawer and removed cash left by a previous shift.  He ran back out the front door of the restaurant. Although the cook and busboy ran out the back to watch which direction he went, they did not see him.

The witnesses described the suspect as a black male about 30-years-old, 5'10" tall and 200 pounds. They said he wore a black baseball cap backwards on his head and had a black bandana or rag covering his face. He also wore a black hooded sweatshirt, blue denim jeans and red shoes.

Neither the waitress nor the cook was seriously injured in the robbery. Anyone with information about the suspect is encouraged to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
