A robber carrying what police said appeared to be a gun concealed in a bag, escaped a local McDonald’s Tuesday night with an undisclosed amount of money, according to an Ithaca Police Department press release.
Police were called to a robbery at 9 p.m. Tuesday at McDonald’s on 372 Elmira Rd. and discovered at least one suspect had already fled the scene. Before fleeing in a vehicle waiting in the parking lot, the suspect confronted numerous employees with what appeared to be a gun.
The suspect was reported to be a white male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a pair of dark sunglasses and a purple bandana.
Anyone with information should contact the IPD at 272-9973.
