Police are looking for a man suspected of an attempted armed robbery at a local Taco Bell restaurant.
Police said the man armed with a gun came into the Taco Bell at 3013 Salem Ave. around 11:30 a.m. and demanded cash. The employees then went to the back of the store and hid in a walk-in freezer.
While the employees hid, the man fled without getting any money, police said. One witness reported that the suspect got into a white SUV. The vehicle’s license plates are out of North Carolina, according to reports. The witness said the vehicle was last seen headed toward Seibenthaler Avenue.
The suspect is black, was wearing a hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and had a gas mask or a dust mask over his face, police said.
