Newark – Delaware State Police are investigating the robbery of a Newark area McDonalds that occurred last night.
The incident occurred at approximately 8:54 p.m., Thursday, January 26, 2018, at the McDonalds, located at 2351 Glasgow Avenue, Newark. A black male suspect entered the business and remained inside for approximately five minutes before walking behind the counter. A 27 year old female employee became alarmed as the suspect approached, due to him having his hand in his pocket, implying he had a weapon. The employee moved to the rear of the business at which time the suspect accessed the cash register, removing an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect then exited the business and was last seen walking towards the eastbound lanes of U.S. Rt. 40. The employee was not injured as a result of the incident.
The suspect is described as a black male, 6’00”, 220, wearing all dark clothing to include the covering which concealed his face.
No surveillance photos are available at this time.
