Authorities in California are searching for a man, who robbed a Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles.
The man was not wearing a mask and was told he needed to wear one. The man refused and started arguing. The argument escalated, and the suspect pulled out a gun on the cashier.
"He came inside the restaurant without a mask, the cashier told him he needed a mask, he told the cashier 'if I don't put on a mask what you going to do' and then pulled out a gun," general manager Angela Prieto said.
The man then stormed into the kitchen and demanded food from the staff, which refused to hand over food, so the suspect grabbed a few bags of takeout orders and ran out the back.
"He didn't take any cash," Prieto said. "He actually took chicken, and before he walked out the door, he took syrup for his chicken."
Deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department are on the lookout for a man, in his 30s or 40s with a thin build, black curly hair, and tattoos on his neck and face. He was wearing a green sweater and white sweatpants with black polka dots.
