El Centro police are searching for a man authorities think may be linked to two robberies in the city, the most recent occurring Saturday night.
Police Sgt. Mike Crankshaw said a male suspect, thought to be in his early to mid-20s, entered Roberto's Taco Shop at 880 W. Adams Ave. about 10:30 p.m. Saturday brandishing a handgun.
The man, wearing a mask, demanded money from those working in the restaurant and fired one shot before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.
No one was injured and the shot fired was not aimed at anyone, Crankshaw said.
He described the assailant as Hispanic, wearing a blue shirt, blue pants and a baseball cap, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10 inches tall. Crankshaw said the man was described as having a medium to heavy build.
