NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police on Monday were asking the public to identify a man who robbed a Chipotle restaurant, and made an employee tie up his co-workers, in the Mutual of America Building in Midtown last week.

The robbery happened around 11:35 p.m. on April 25. The man entered the Chipotle in the office building, at 320 Park Ave. near 50th St., and demanded money from the store safe, police said.
