BOMBON BANDITS: Police search for men who stole cash box, threatened to kill employees at Aurora Mexican restaurant


AURORA | Local investigators are asking for the public’s help identifying a pair of men suspected of robbing a Mexican restaurant at gunpoint last month, according to Aurora police.

Police say two Spanish-speaking men entered El Bombon restaurant at 1082 Havana St. at 10 p.m., April 15 and threatened employees with a black, semi-automatic handgun. The thieves told workers to get on their knees and look away while they carried out the robbery, threatening to kill the employees if they didn’t comply, according to police.
