New details released about May 29 holdup

Police have released a new description of the man in last week's armed robbery at Golden Chopsticks in the 3100 block of Santa Rita Road.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic or light-skinned black male, 18 to 20 years old, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slender build. He entered the restaurant with a black handgun and demanded money from the restaurant employee.

After receiving cash, the suspect ran out the front door headed eastbound on West Las Positas Boulevard and got into a car parked on Weymouth Court. The suspect was last seen driving away eastbound on West Las Positas in an older model '80s-era four-door Toyota Camry that was described as dirty and "beat-up looking."

At the time of the robbery, the suspect was wearing a gray shirt, dark pants and a backward dark-colored baseball style hat, with sunglasses and a black backpack.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
