COVINA, Calif. (AP) — Police say a man with a knife tried to rob a Southern California pizza restaurant just a few hours after burglars had already stolen from it.
Covina police Lt. Trevor Gaumer tells the San Gabriel Valley Tribune (http: //bit.ly/2f3Slm5) that burglars broke into Pizza Chalet on Tuesday and made off with $1,500.
As the owner was cleaning up after the burglary less than three hours later, the knife-wielding man walked in and demanded money.
The owner flagged down an officer providing extra patrol help.
Gaumer says the suspect, 19-year-old Ernest Ramirez, didn’ t listen to the officer’s order to give himself up, and fought with arriving officers briefly until he was subdued.
Gaumer says Ramirez was treated for minor injuries.
