Armed Robbery At McDonald's In Merced

Posted:
MERCED, Calif. (KMPH) -

The search is on for an armed robber who targeted a fast food restaurant in Merced Sunday night.

Merced Police were called to the McDonald's on West 13th and R streets around 10:30 p.m.

A worker told officers that a man, who was wearing a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a scarf over his face, came in with a gun and told a manager to give him a bag full of cash from the safe. The manager complied.

According to police, as this was happening, another worker escaped from the restaurant but later came face to face with the robber. The man pointed the gun at the worker's face and demanded her to hit the ground. He then took off.

No customers were in the restaurant at the time, and the employees were not hurt.

It's not known how much money was taken.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Merced Police Department at (209) 385-4725.
