Armed with a paintball gun, a man jumped through a drive-thru window and took money from employees.

The man drove up to the Jack in the Box along Pacific Avenue in Stockton, looking for a soda he allegedly ordered.

When employees handed him the drink, the man placed his arm inside the window and stopped it from closing. He then jumped through the window, armed with a paintball gun.

He took money and left the restaurant just after midnight Thursday morning; no one was hurt.

Investigators are working on a more detailed description of the man.
