Police are searching for two men who robbed employees at gunpoint just after 4 a.m. Sept. 20 at the McDonald’s at 1200 Livernois.
According to police, two employees were locking the door to the restaurant when a man with a shotgun appeared and demanded they open the safe and put all of the money into a grocery bag he provided.
Police said the employees put cash and some change in the bag, and the man took the bag and ran out of the restaurant.
The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20s, 6 feet tall and 210 pounds. He was wearing a dark-blue hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses, leather gloves and dark pants, and covered his face with a blue bandana.
He and another man fled the area in a white 2010 Chevy Impala with a Michigan license plate, according to reports.
