SANTA ANA – Two men, wearing bandanas over their faces, robbed a towing company early this morning after holding three employees at gunpoint, authorities said.
The three men made off with an undisclosed amount of cash they took from a manager's office, said Cmdr. Steve Colon of the Santa Ana police.
The robbery took place just after midnight at Pepe's Towing, 1640 S. Grand Ave., Colon said. Three employees were inside when two men entered the business.
One of the men was seen holding a firearm as the two demanded that the employees hand over their cash through a cashier's window, Colon said.
The two robbers were described men in their mid 20s, wearing dark hooded sweatshirts and bandanas over their faces.
One of the robbers kicked down a manager's office door and took two envelopes with hundreds of dollars cash, Colon said.
No one was injured in the robbery.
