First on KHQ.Com: Dinner Scare at McDonald's In East Spokane; Suspect Still At Large
SPOKANE, Wash. - An evening dinner quickly turned into a slight scare for patrons in a Spokane McDonalds. Authorities say a man walked into the McDonalds on 15 South Havana Street and Sprague Avenue just after 5 p.m. Thursday and attempted to rob the restaurant. According to Corporal Marty Pannell, the man said he had a gun and demanded cash. They say an employee told the man he couldn't open the till, and when a manager shouted he called 911 the man left without cash.
Authorities say no one in the restaurant noticed a weapon with the man or was injured. They say he left on foot, jumping a fence and running toward the Loma Vista Apartments. He is described as white, in his late 30's or 40's, six feet tall and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a camouflage baseball cap, a tan button-up shirt over a white tee shirt, and blue jeans. He also wore sunglasses and had his brown hair cut short.
Anyone with information regarding this attempted armed robbery is encouraged to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
