Last Friday the Tio Leo’s bar in Del Mar got robbed by the ‘Restaurant Robber‘. One of my friends was in the bar while the robbery was going on. She called 911 on her cell phone (I’m not sure if she did this before of after he took her purse). It took about five minutes for a 911 operator to answer the phone! That is just too long.
Just think if her call was answered right away and there was a police car in the area. This guy could have been stopped and not been able to continue his string of robberies!
