PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A man who pulled off a brazen robbery at a McDonald's in North Philadelphia is still on the loose.
Surveillance video shows the armed suspect reaching inside the restaurant's drive-thru window on the 4100 block of Whitaker Avenue at 3:25 a.m. on Nov. 4.
He demanded money from an employee, and then pulled out the entire cash register.
"It's scary for the workers, they're just trying to complete their shift and an honest day's pay and unfortunately, we have some bad people out there," said Captain of East Detectives Matthew James.
The suspect drove off in a red SUV with three other people inside.
Customers say they feel for the employees and fear for themselves.
"It would have been terrible for all of us to get caught up in it," said James McNeil of Olney.
"It's terrifying, you have young kids working in there. It's very scary to have to deal with that while you're at work," said Shante Lewis of West Oak Lane.
In a statement, McDonald's franchisee Ken Youngblood said, "Our top priority is always the safety and well-being of our customers and employees at our restaurants and we are cooperating with law enforcement in their ongoing investigation."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia police at 215-686-TIPS.
