The 52-year-old manager had just returned to the store, located at 8146 S. Cicero Ave., after a trip to the bank when he was attacked, according to police.
The manager was walking toward the store with a currency bag when he was attacked from behind by an unknown assailant.
Police say the mugger began beating the manager — repeatedly punching him in the face until he fell to the ground.
According to police, the mugger continued to punch the man in the face and the chest as he lay on the ground. The mugger then grabbed the currency bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash and ran off toward the south parking lot of the business where police believe a vehicle was waiting for him.
Authorities say the manager received only minor injuries and refused medical attention.
Burbank Police Division Chief Mike Dudlo said the attack was captured on camera and investigators are reviewing multiple surveillance videos and area traffic camera footage in an attempt to identify the mugger.
The offender was described as a black male, wearing all black clothes.
If anyone has any information on this incident, the Burbank Police Department has requested they contact the the Investigative Unit at 708-924-7300.
