FREMONT -- A gunman wearing a black Halloween mask donned a drive-through headset early Tuesday morning inside a Jack in the Box and told customers to wait as he robbed the store, police said.
Officers were dispatched at 12:01 a.m. to the fast-food restaurant at 36848 Fremont Blvd. in Centerville for a report of an armed robbery, said police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.
Witnesses told police that a suspect wearing a Halloween mask and armed with a small revolver entered the store and began to rob it.
At some point during the robbery, the gunman put on a headset, posed as an employee and asked customers in the drive-through line to wait, Bosques said.
Items taken during the robbery included cash and personal items.
Police described the suspect as a green-eyed Indian man in his 20s, standing 6 feet tall and wearing a gray hoodie and bluejeans.
