SAN DIEGO -- Authorities Thursday released surveillance video of a man who, armed with a pistol, robbed a Pacific Beach pizza restaurant Tuesday and made off with a few dollars worth of coins.

The thief, who appeared to be in his 30s, confronted an employee at the Domino's storefront in the 2000 block of Garnet Avenue, displayed the gun and demanded money about 11:45 a.m., according to San Diego police. He fled the area on foot to the west.

"They said they didn't leave any money in the drawer, only quarters," said Mohammad Mustafa, an employee at the Subway next door.

The man was described as a roughly 5-foot-9-inch, 160-pound Hispanic male dressed in dark-colored pants, a gray hooded jacket, a gray baseball cap and beige boots or tennis shoes.
