Detectives were looking Tuesday for an armed man who robbed two workers at a San Fernando restaurant and forced them drive him to their home a few blocks away so he could burglarize it.

The victims called police about 9:45 p.m. Monday to report a man had entered their Mexican restaurant and market on the 700 block of North Maclay Avenue, brandished a handgun and demanded money, said San Fernando Police Sgt. Tony Vair.

Fearing for their lives, they handed it over.

The suspect then forced them to drive him to their home a few blocks down the street. Once there, he ransacked the home.

He fled in the victims' Dodge truck with an unknown amount of stolen property, police said.
