Concord police are searching for a man suspected of robbing a restaurant at gunpoint during the weekend, a police lieutenant said today. Around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, an armed man walked into Waikiki Hawaiian Barbecue on 1680 Willow Pass Road through an unlocked back entrance and demanded cash from a female restaurant employee who was preparing for lunch service, Lt.

He stole a necklace from the employee, but no cash, before firing a single shot inside the restaurant and fleeing. No one was injured, Dyer said.The suspect is described as an Asian man, who is about 6 feet tall with slim build. He was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt during the robbery. Police have yet to track down leads on the suspect, and said he was unknown to the restaurant employee.
