An employee who simply walked away may have thwarted an armed robbery attempt at a fast-food drive-thru window on Sunday night.
Wichita police say a masked man clothed in black walked up to the drive-thru window at the McDonald’s at 1050 N. Broadway around 9 p.m., pointed a handgun at the employee manning the station and demanded money. But instead of handing over any cash or food, the employee just stepped away, Officer Paul Cruz said.
The masked man left with no money, Cruz said. No one was hurt.
Police say the would-be robber is a white man, around 35 years old and 5-feet-11 with a medium build. He was wearing black pants, a black tank top and a black ski mask at the time of the assault. He remained at large Monday.
