Armed Man Demands Food from Roscoe’s After He’s Denied Service for Not Wearing Mask

Veronica Miracle, KABC, February 4, 2021

A maskless man was denied service at a Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles – so he returned with a gun, authorities say.

The man showed up at the back of the Pasadena restaurant, demanded all the chicken and waffles they could give him and ran off, police and store officials say.


Police and restaurant officials say when the suspect first walked into the restaurant to order, he was turned away because he wasn’t wearing a mask and was told he could return if he was wearing one.

Instead, he showed up at the back of the restaurant with a gun. {snip}

Cook Robert Gonzalez was in the kitchen when the suspect walked in.

“He comes straight toward me with a gun, pointing at me and saying put all the chicken in the bag,” Gonzalez said.


“He didn’t take any cash,” manager Angela Prieto said. {snip}


Ironically, surveillance video captured the man’s face because he wasn’t wearing a mask.
