Officer Albie Esparza says people were boozing at a bar on the 400 block of Potrero Avenue when three unknown robbers busted into the venue at about 1:45 a.m., right after last call.
Two of the robbers held the patrons on the floor at gunpoint while a third armed man made his way to the counter. He pointed a gun at the barkeep and demanded both the tip jar as well as all the cash in the register and his pockets, Esparza says. After collecting his loot, the robber snatched a purse from one of the patrons and the three men fled the bar in a burgundy vehicle.
The suspects — who were only described as three black men in their 20s — are still on the lam, according to police.
A night of drinking turned into a night of terror when a trio of armed robbers stormed into a local bar and robbed the patrons and bartender at gunpoint.
