Police search for two suspects in Cottman Ave. McDonald's robbery


Po­lice are look­ing for two men who took $10,000 from the safe of a Cottman Av­en­ue fast-food res­taur­ant early on Aug. 29.

At 5:10 a.m. on that date, a man entered Mc­Don­ald’s res­taur­ant at Cottman Av­en­ue and Roosevelt Boulevard, pur­chased food and sat at a table, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The man was joined by an­oth­er man, who then went to the bath­room and came out cov­er­ing his face and armed with a sil­ver and black hand­gun. The two men went be­hind the res­taur­ant counter and forced a su­per­visor to open the safe. With the cash, the men left the res­taur­ant and drove away in a dark auto.

Both men are de­scribed as black, 20 years old, 6 feet tall and wear­ing blue hooded sweat shirts. The armed man was wear­ing blue pants and gloves. The oth­er rob­ber was bearded and wear­ing jeans. Adi­das was prin­ted on the front of his sweat shirt.
