The gunman climbed into the backseat, held a gun to the driver’s head and demanded he withdraw money from the ATM. The second man was in the front passenger seat.

The gunman ordered the driver exit the car and hand over his wallet and iPhone. He then climbed into the driver’s seat and the other man exited the front passenger seat and climbed into a gold Nissan Altima waiting in the lot. Both fled.

The victim walked to the restaurant where he works and called police.
