MESA -- Police are looking for a suspect who robbed a Mesa Whataburger with a kitchen knife Sunday morning.

When an employee at the Whataburger near Broadway and Dobson roads asked the suspect if she could help him, he told her he wanted all the money.

The Hispanic male walked behind the counter with a black-handled kitchen knife in his hand. He ordered the cashier to open the cash drawer and hand him the money. When she did, the suspect also grabbed a roll of quarters from the cash drawer.

The suspect then left the restaurant in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as 5 feet 7 inches, 150-160 pounds, 20-25 years old and unshaven. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and blue jeans.
