WOODBURN, Ore. -- Woodburn police are asking for the public’s help to find a robber after a scary encounter over the weekend.

A man pulled a gun on a cashier at the Taqueria Los Laureles restaurant last Friday night then took off with cash.

Restaurant employees were terrified.

“I wanted to do something but when I saw him with a gun, I had two customers in front of the bar,” said employee Jessica Martinez. “I thought about my safety and their safety. I didn't do anything. I let him take anything he wanted to take.

Witnesses told police the man took off in a dark-colored sedan.

Anyone with information that may help investigators was encouraged to call the Woodburn Police Department.
