Restaurants have had it tough the past couple years thanks to the pandemic. A robbery is the last thing they need to deal with on top of slower business, rude customers and staff and supply shortages.

California restaurant Monkey King was recently the victim of a brazen armed robbery. A man walked in with a duffle bag that contained an assault riffle. Surveillance footage shows what happened next.
