After ordering, the man pulled out a gun and demanded money from the cash register.
A store employee told KTLA that the suspected armed robbery appeared particularly nervous and repeatedly apologized for the crime, saying, “I’m sorry, but I really needed the money for my family.”
Capriotti’s owner said it was the third time her sandwich shop had been targeted by thieves.
