Gunman robs fast-food restaurant

July 18, 1996

A Linthicum fast-food restaurant was robbed Tuesday by a gunman who accosted two employees as they left the building, county police said.

The employees told police that they were leaving the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in the 700 block of Nursery Road about 10: 45 p.m. when a man with a handgun approached them.

The man forced them back into the restaurant and into the manager's office, where he pointed the weapon at the manager and demanded money from the safe, police said.

The gunman took money from the safe and told the employees to lie on the floor and not to move, police said. The man ran out of the building, got into a car driven by another man and they sped off, police said.

Police did not find the robbers. A detailed description of the gunman was not given.
