A 41-year-old Columbia man was held up in the restroom of an Owen Brown fast-food restaurant Monday, police said.

The victim was in a Roy Rogers men's room in the 7200 block of Cradlerock Way at 2:20 p.m. when the suspect threatened him with an automatic weapon, ordered him to turn over cash and then instructed him not to leave the room.

The suspect took an undisclosed amount of money and fled in a late model Mustang or a Thunderbird with tinted windows and an out-of-state temporary tag. The victim was not injured, police said.
