A robber on Sunday ordered ice cream before passing a note to a Cold Stone Creamery manager and making off with cash, police said.
The manager was alone about 2:59 p.m. inside the creamery in the 3200 block of Foothill Boulevard when a man entered and put in his order, according to Glendale police.
He then placed a note on the shop’s counter demanding all the money, including change, inside the cash register.
Reached by phone on Monday, the store manager said the man was “really matter of fact.”
“I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ He was like, ‘Yeah.’ So I said, ‘OK,’” she said.
After taking the money, the man exited the shop through a side door, police said.
He left the coffee-flavored ice cream behind.
“And he didn’t pay for it,” the 41-year-old store manager, who was unharmed in the incident, said.
The man was described as being 5 foot 9 inches tall to 5 foot 11 inches tall, Latino or Asian. He was wearing Aviator-style sunglasses, a glove on his right hand and a dark-colored sweatshirt and baseball hat.
