Armed men rob Red Robin Diner

Two armed rob­bers held up a busy late-night eat­ery in May­fair early last Fri­day. The heist oc­curred at about 1:45 a.m. at the Red Robin Diner, 6330 Frank­ford Ave., when two un­known men entered the busi­ness, in­clud­ing one with a gun and a bandana over his face. The gun­man ap­proached an em­ploy­ee and de­man­ded money, while the oth­er crook served mostly as a lookout, po­lice said.

The em­ploy­ee took about $250 from the cash re­gister and gave it to the gun­man. Both rob­bers fled west­bound on Levick Street from Frank­ford Av­en­ue. Al­though there were pat­rons in the res­taur­ant at the time, no in­jur­ies were re­por­ted.

Po­lice de­scribed the gun­man as white, 25 to 30 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 200 pounds with red curly hair, blue jeans, a black T-shirt and a black or purple bandana cov­er­ing his face. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
