BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Customers picking up Saturday night’s dinner at a northeast Baltimore KFC got more than they bargained for when they were forced onto the ground during an armed robbery.
Police said at 7:10 p.m. officers were called to the KFC at 6219 Belair Road in Overlea for a report of an armed robbery. When officers arrived the manager told them the store was robbed by two men who took an undisclosed amount of money.
An initial investigation found that the men entered the restaurant through the south entrance; one served as a lookout while the other brandished a gun and ordered customers to the floor. The gun wielding suspect then jumped over the counter and took money from the register and the drive through window. Police described the man with the gun as a black male, wearing a light grey hooded jacket and light blue jeans.
Police said the second suspect told frightened customers to stay on the floor as he stood by the entrance serving as a lookout. The lookout is described as a black male wearing a dark colored hoodie with a patch on the shoulder and denim blue jeans.
After getting the cash, both men fled through the rear parking lot and headed southbound on Marluth Avenue.
No one was injured during the robbery. The Citywide Robbery Unit is investigating.
