Fairfax City Police are looking for the masked man who robbed a Main Street restaurant with a handgun Monday night.
The man went inside at about 8:50 p.m. Monday and threatened the cashier with a handgun. He demanded money and took it upon himself to try to pry open the cash register, to no avail. Instead, he ordered an employee to open the register and ran out with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to Sgt. Joe Johnson of the City of Fairfax Police Department. He was last seen running toward Tedrich Boulevard.
No one was injured in the incident.
Police arrived but could not locate the suspect. If you have any information, call police at 703-385-7924 or contact Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS to make an anonymous tip. Those who contact Crime Solvers with information leading to an arrest can receive a cash prize.
This is the second armed robbery within the city limits since the start of the new year.
