Attempted Armed Robbery Suspect

Baton Rouge police are searching for a man in a Ford Explorer who wore blue latex gloves while trying to rob a McDonald’s drive-through window on Saturday morning.

When the man stopped at the window of the O’Neal Lane restaurant in a green 1990s-model Explorer at around 9:45 a.m. Saturday, he aimed what looked like a gun and demanded money from an employee, said Cpl. Don Coppola, a Baton Rouge Police spokesman.

But the employee quickly locked the window and ran toward the kitchen, and the man drove south on O’Neal Lane empty-handed, Coppola said. No one was hurt in the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident can contact police at 225.389.3845 or Crime Stoppers at 344.7867.
