McDonald's cashier's yell drives holdup man away

September 08, 1994

A cashier's scream scared off a gunman who intended to rob the McDonald's restaurant on Route 3 in Crofton Tuesday afternoon, county police said.

The man walked up to the cashier shortly after 5 p.m., slammed his fist down on the counter and pulled the gun from under his sweat shirt. He told her she had 15 seconds to give him the money in the cash register, police said.

At that point the cashier screamed and ran into the kitchen, police said. Witnesses told police the man ran out of the store in the 1100 block of Crain Highway, jumped in a white pickup truck and drove off.
