Two employees were working the end of the morning rush Monday when a man went in the back door of the drive-thru stand and demanded money. He revealed a weapon and demanded money.
According to one of the employees, the robber had a weapon that she thinks was some kind of tool. The employee asked not to be named for safety reasons. She said while the robber was fumbling with the cash, the employees pulled back the robber’s hood, and he fled on foot.
The suspect is described as a white male in his early to mid-twenties, between 5-foot 8-inches and 6-foot 1-inch tall, with a skinny build. The suspect was also described as having short, clean cut black hair and goatee.
He wore black skinny jeans, a black sweatshirt, black gloves with yellow markings, black shoes, and sunglasses.
Police are asking for anyone who has information or who may have witnessed the robbery to contact them at 586-0600.
