Brooklyn Park Burger King robbed
Two men armed with a handgun robbed a Brooklyn Park Burger King Thursday night, getting away with an undetermined amount of money after forcing the manager into a walk-in freezer.
Police said the men walked into the restaurant, in the 5500 block of Ritchie Highway, about 10:30 p.m. and ordered some food.
After paying, police said, the men threatened the manager, Nils A. Canter, with a handgun and demanded that he open the safe.
After stuffing money from the safe and the cash registers into a pink pillow case, the men forced Mr. Canter, 58, into a walk-in freezer. He came out several minutes later, but the suspects had gone.
