When questioned about the incident, Patterson Police Sgt. Paul Yotsuya said on Friday afternoon, Feb. 21, Patterson Police deputies responded immediately to a call of a robbery at Miss Café at 11 Plaza Circle Suite D Feb. 14 around 6 p.m. and immediately began checking the area for a suspect that got away with cash.
Victims described the robber as a black male adult wearing a mask—they could tell skin color by his bare hands. The robber displayed a weapon that police have refused to identify, demanded cash and fled with it towards the Patterson Post Office on El Circulo.
