Burger King employees robbed at gunpoint

By Shannon McDonald

An armed robber help up a Burger King near Northeast High yesterday morning around 5 a.m.

The man entered the fastfood restaurant – on Cottman and Summerdale avenues – through the drive-through window and demanded money from the employees. None of the employees were hurt, and police are still trying to determine if yesterday’s robbery is related to a recent string of similar fastfood thefts.
