COSTA MESA, Calif.—Law enforcement is in search of several masked robbers who barged into a South Coast Plaza diner, ordering customers to drop to the ground on Nov. 22.
Police were called to the scene at 7:13 p.m. on Monday to the Seasons 52 restaurant located at 3300 Bristol St.
Three to five masked men involved in the robbery wearing black clothes and hoodies told the customers to “get down,” with one robber apparently armed with a gun, according to Costa Mesa Police Department Spokesperson Roxi Fayd.
The suspects stole a purse and fled the scene in a white Buick four-door vehicle heading south onto Bristol Street, Fyad said.
No injuries were reported.
While the suspects are still at large, anyone with information can contact detectives at 714-754-5051 or 714-754-4933.
