NORWALK, Conn. Three masked men, one of whom allegedly had a gun, robbed a Norwalk restaurant Wednesday night and escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash. The description of the car they used was similar to one used a short while earlier in a Stamford armed robbery. The car may have been stolen from Bridgeport.
The robbery of Fiesta Limena, located at 330 Connecticut Avenue, was reported at 9:43 p.m. At least six people were in the restaurant at the time, Norwalk Police Sgt. Dave O'Connor said.
The manager said she had been in her office when she heard yelling. She walked out and saw three black men wearing masks and gloves. Another witness said one of them had a large black gun. They left with a cash box.
A short while earlier a "be on the lookout" alert was sent out on the Norwalk Police scanner for a grey Honda Civic that was involved in an armed robbery in Stamford. Norwalk witnesses described a green Honda and gave a complete license plate number. That came back as a Honda stolen from Bridgeport. The witnesses in Stamford had a partial plate that was almost the same as the one given in Norwalk.
The detective bureau is investigating.
