The on Route 37 East near Batchelor Street was the scene of a robbery Wednesday evening, police said, where an employee inside the fast-food restaurant was robbed sometime after 9 p.m.
Chief Michael Mastronardy said the suspect walked into the McDonald’s and robbed someone there.
The individual was not armed, and Mastronardy said there were no injuries as a result of the incident. He said it was believed the suspect and victim knew each other.
Mastronardy on Friday morning said the investigation was still preliminary. It is believed the suspect came in looking for an employee, robbed him after demanding cash, and then ran from the restaurant and drove off in a car.
"This wasn’t a robbery in the typical sense," said Mastronardy. "We're still investigating a simple assault and that money was removed from victim."
The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. The McDonald’s was open at the time serving customers and closes at 11 p.m.
He said the investigation was ongoing.
