Two gunmen entered a McDonald’s in Zion Tuesday morning and held the employees at gunpoint while taking cash from the register, police said.
The Zion Police Department responded around 6:41 a.m. Tuesday to the McDonald’s, 2008 Sheridan Road, for a report of an armed robbery.
Zion Police Chief Kirk Henderson said that two men wearing surgical-type masks entered the store and one of the men placed an order for food.
When the employee opened the cash drawer both subjects pulled out handguns and pointed them at the employee, Henderson said. One of the men reached over the counter and pulled cash from the open register.
“The second subject walked behind the counter, pointed the gun at other employees and attempted to get them to open the cash register at the drive through window. This was unsuccessful,” Henderson said.
Both suspects fled out the north door of the restaurant and were last seen walking northeast away from the building. No one was injured in the robbery and the offenders took an unknown amount of cash.
The first suspect is described as a tall black male wearing all black clothing, black stocking cap, black shoes with white soles, and a blue surgical mask. He displayed a black handgun.
The second suspect is described as a shorter black male wearing a gray stocking hat, black mask, black/white coat with a black hood, and brown Timberland-style boots. He displayed a large frame semi-automatic pistol.
Anyone with information the robbery is asked to contact the Zion Police Department at 847-746-4110 or Lake County Crime Stoppers at 847-662-2222.
