A man robbed the Taco Bell in Pinole at gunpoint Tuesday morning, police said.
At about 6:15 a.m., police responded to the restaurant at 1561 Fitzgerald Drive, near Appian Way, and met with employees who said the suspect had entered the business about five minutes earlier.
The man showed employees a handgun before ordering them to the ground and to not look at him, police said.
The suspect then took an undisclosed amount of cash from the back office before fleeing west on Fitzgerald, possibly in a black Honda sedan.
He was described as a black man, roughly 6 feet tall between 30 to 40 years of age with a medium build, facial hair and shoulder-length braided hair. He was wearing a black shirt and pants with a gray sweatshirt and a black beanie, according to police.
Anyone with additional information about the case is encouraged to call police at (510) 724-1111.
