A customer walking into your store wearing a gorilla mask is probably never a good sign, and that was definitely the case for one taco shop owner in La Mesa last night.

KTLA reports that two men walked into Aliberto's Taco Shop around midnight yesterday. One ordered a burrito, and as the clerk was busy preparing it, the other began demanding money. They were reportedly armed with a stun gun, and were described as black and in their mid-20s.

It's not clear how much money they got away with.
