Armed robber sought in holdup at McDonald's

Howard County police are searching for an armed robber who held up employees at a McDonald's restaurant in Jessup early Sunday, then fled with an undisclosed amount of money.

No serious injuries were reported, but one employee received minor abrasions to her wrist when the robber grabbed her, police said.

The robbery began shortly after midnight at the restaurant in the 8700 block of Washington Blvd.

Employees told police that the man apparently hid in the restaurant until it closed, then brandished a small handgun as he approached one employee.

The handgun might have been a semiautomatic, police said.

After confronting the employee, the man ordered all of the employees inside the manager's rear office, police said.

The robber made the manager give him the day's receipts from the office, then fled, police said.

The robber was described as a black male between 5 feet 10 and 6 feet 1 inch tall, with a medium build. He was wearing black clothing and a ski mask, police said.
