No one was injured in the incident at Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, KABC Channel 7 reports. But the suspect was able to avoid arrest.

The Los Angeles Times reports the suspect and another man, who was wearing a mask, entered Roscoe’s Wednesday evening. The suspect began arguing with a restaurant worker when he was told he needed to put on a mask, the Times reports.

KABC reports the man pulled out a gun. Workers were confused because the suspect did not go toward the registers, but instead toward the back of the restaurant, demanding he be given chicken, waffles and syrup.

Both men then left the restaurant after the suspect took food. Police are still looking for the suspects, reports say.
