Another Salt Lake City restaurant was robbed at gunpoint Thursday night.
Two men entered Racheritos, 1860 S. Redwood Road, just after 10:30 p.m. One man was armed with a sawed-off, pump shotgun, according to witnesses.
The men demanded employees open the registers, took cash and then fled in a maroon Buick with Utah license plate 832 UNK, according police. The vehicle was listed as stolen out of West Valley City, said Salt Lake police detective Jeff Bedard.
The suspects were described by witnesses as Polynesian, one about 6-foot-2 with a beard and the other 5-foot-5. Both had stocky builds. Both men also wore gray hoodies and blue ski masks. One man wore blue jeans with the pant legs rolled.
The incident was at least the third violent restaurant robbery in Salt Lake County this month.
On Feb. 9, three men wearing dark clothing and bandanas fired a shot inside a Wendy's restaurant, 919 W. 2100 South, took cash from the registers and left. The shot hit the restaurant's deep fryer. No one was injured.
Two men rushed into Molca Salsa, 2901 E. 3300 South, on Feb. 1 and immediately fired a shot into the ceiling. The men took money from the registers and robbed all the customers in the restaurant.
As of Friday, Bedard said there was no evidence to show the three incidents were related.
