McDonald's hit by armed robbers

DULUTH - Two unidentified men robbed the McDonald's at 1963 Pleasant Hill Road on Monday and stole an undisclosed amount of money from the restaurant's safe.

The shift manager told police two tall, slender men wearing ski masks, blue hooded sweatshirts and work gloves entered the restaurant at 5:45 a.m. One of the suspects pressed a handgun into the shift manager's left shoulder and demanded to be taken to the restaurant's safe. He placed the money in a striped pillow case, according to police reports.

The second suspect acted as a lookout during the robbery and stood in the kitchen area. The two men exited through a side door, fleeing the area on foot.
