A man who was denied service at a Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles in Pasadena, California on Wednesday (February 3) for not wearing a mask, returned to the restaurant with a gun.
According to police and store officials, the man held restaurant workers at gunpoint and demanded all of the chicken and waffles they could give him. Roscoe’s employee Robert Gonzalez told ABC7 about the man confronting him, stating, “He comes straight toward me with a gun, pointing at me and saying put all the chicken in the bag.”
The restaurant’s manager, Angela Prieto, added, “He didn’t take any cash. He actually took chicken and before he walked out the door he took syrup for his chicken.”
Prieto continued, “They were feeling scared, especially my cashier. She was very, very scared. And when I first talked to her she was basically hysterical, but after a while she calmed down and started laughing about it because she realized all he did was take some chicken.”
The man then fled the scene after taking the food, and he remains at large.
