DORMONT (KDKA) – Police are looking for a man in connection with three robberies at local Eat’n Park restaurants.
Police say a man struck the Eat’n Park on West Liberty Avenue in Dormont first around 3:52 p.m. Wednesday.
Police are calling it a brazen attempt, considering it happened in broad daylight and the restaurant was filled with people.
“I’ve been here 28 years and we’ve had robberies before. Typically, they’re later at night. It’s unusual for that time of day,” Sgt. James Burke with Dormont Police said.
Police said the man came into the restaurant with a black hoodie and black bandana over his face with a white skull cap and red lips.
“He’s approaching the register with hands in his pockets. At that time, three managers in the store see him and become alarmed and another manager starts yelling, ‘Register, register,’ and they converge towards the register,” Sgt. Burke said.
It is unclear if the man was armed. Police say he took off and was last seen getting into either a gold Toyota or Mazda.
Later in the day, police say a man fitting the same physical description hit the Eat’n Park at Edgewood Towne Center around 9:08 p.m. They say the man threatened to shoot, but never showed a firearm. He got away with about $800.
A third robbery took place at the Eat’n Park in North Versailles on Route 30 around 9:24 p.m. No one was in the restaurant at the time.
The suspect is described as being an African-American male standing about 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighing about 107 pounds.
