Albuquerque police are still on the look out for the man who tried to rob Little Anita's restaurant in Old Town Wednesday.
Investigators said the robber did not get away with any money, but he managed to cause a huge SWAT situation that brought the area to a standstill for two hours.
The restaurant's surveillance camera captured the man on video.
The footage shows the man talking with a waitress at Little Anita's. A few moments later, he shows her a gun.
"He pulled out a gun and asked her to open the register," said Matthew Jaramillo, Little Anita's assistant manager.
In the video, the employee appears to be calm.
According to reports, the waitress told the man she would go get the manager to open the register. Instead, she went and got the rest of the staff to leave out the back door.
