An armed man robbed a restaurant on Mission Street in San Francisco early this morning, police said.
The man, who is between 30 and 35 years old, entered a restaurant in the 3200 block of Mission Street at about 1 a.m., police said. He allegedly ordered at gunpoint three victims to walk into the restaurant freezer.
The suspect then ordered a 20-year-old man to bind the other two victims’ hands and feet with zip ties, police said.
The robber ordered the unbound victim to get keys in the manager’s office and open the safe, police said. He then allegedly emptied the safe and ordered the victim to empty his pockets.
The robber then tied the remaining unbound victim in the freezer and blocked the freezer door with large flour sacks from the outside, police said. The victims then worked to free themselves while the robber escaped out the back of the restaurant.
No suspects have been identified, San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
