Authorities responded to the Porter Ranch store in the 19300 block of Rinaldi Street at about 10:30 p.m. Los Angeles police said a suspect entered the restaurant, brandished a gun and demanded money.

An employee complied and handed over an unknown amount of cash before the suspect fled.

Police said the gun was never discharged, and no injuries were reported.

A detailed description of the male suspect was not released, other than he was wearing a black jacket and hat.

A similar incident happened about 10 p.m. Wednesday at a Subway location in the 11800 block of Balboa Boulevard in Granada Hills, police said.
