An armed man attempted to rob the El Torito restaurant on Olive Avenue Monday morning, prompting the manager to call police while locked inside a back office.
At about 1 a.m. Monday, police say a Latino man confronted the manager and demanded money.
After calling police from behind a locked office door, the man fled empty-handed, said Burbank Police Sgt. M. Ferguson. No one was injured.
The man was described as 25 to 30 years old, about 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a black and white striped shirt, black mustache, black pants and short brown hair.
