Posted November 17, 2011

— Police are looking for a man who ordered food at a Fayetteville restaurant and returned a short time later to rob it.

Investigators said Thursday that the man was in a white, four-door car with a sunroof when he robbed the Kobe Restaurant, at 4565 Yadkin Road, around 7:30 p.m. Nov. 7.

After the robbery, they said, the man got into the passenger side of the car and headed northwest on Yadkin Road.

Authorities did not have a detailed description of the robber but said he was captured on surveillance video at the restaurant that has since been posted on the police department's YouTube channel.
