Pair of gunmen rob Lemon Grove restaurant

LEMON GROVE (KUSI) – No shots were fired and no injuries were reported after two men robbed a Lemon Grove Mexican restaurant early Thursday, although the gunmen did escape with money from the register and an employee’s purse.

The two men, according to authorities, entered the Los Rios restaurant by way of a rear service door just after midnight, right after the restaurant had closed for the night. The men ordered the employees at gunpoint to get on the floor as they took money from the register and snatched an employee’s purse.

The gunmen were then seen fleeing on foot through a nearby alley.

Anybody with any information is asked to call the sheriff’s department at (858)565-5200.
