ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - An Irvington man will spend at least 14 years in prison for an armed robbery at a restaurant in Hillside.

Sean Hill pleaded guilty in March to robbery and weapons offenses. He will be required to serve 85 percent of his 17-year sentence before he’s eligible for parole.

Union County authorities say he entered the Wah Yuen restaurant on April 11, 2014 and grabbed the wallet of a customer who was waiting for food.

The 42-year-old Hill then allegedly brandished a knife and demanded more cash, and ordered the restaurant owner to give him money from the register or he would harm the customer.

Hillside police apprehended Hill a short distance away.
