WATSONVILLE -- Two men robbed Wooden Nickel Bar & Grill on Freedom Boulevard on Sunday night, police said.

One wore a Spiderman mask and held what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol, while his cohort wore a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt that concealed his face, Sgt. Brian Ridgway said.

The two masked men stormed into the restaurant about 7:30 p.m. and demanded that everyone put their hands up, Ridgway said.

One of the men then went behind the bar and grabbed cash from the register, Ridgway said. They did not rob the patrons, he said.

The duo were last seen running down an alley behind the restaurant. Initially, it appeared no one got a good look at them, police said.

Wooden Nickel is on Freedom Boulevard near Green Valley Road.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Investigations Department at 831-768-3352 or the anonymous tipline at 831-768-3544.
