Police are searching for a man accused of committing an armed robbery at a diner in Middlesex Township, Pennsylvania.
The robbery went down at a diner located on the 1400 blocks of the Harrisburg Pike in Middlesex Township, PA. According to law enforcement, a man wearing a skeleton mask over his face walked into John’s Diner, a popular eatery among Cumberland County residents, shortly after midnight and approached a waitress.
The suspect brandished a handgun and allegedly threatened to use the firearm unless the restaurant worker gave him cash from the store register.
After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register, the suspect ran out of the diner and fled the scene. It is unclear whether the suspect fled the area on foot or got into a getaway vehicle.
Police recently released a detailed description of the suspect, who has been described by witnesses as a black male standing approximately five-feet-eight-inches tall and weighing roughly 175 pounds. Additionally, witnesses at the diner said that the suspect has a thin build. Law enforcement has been unable to release a description of the robber’s face because he concealed his identity with the mask.
The Middlesex Township Police Department is searching high and low for the armed robbery suspect and is asking anyone who has information about the theft incident to contact detectives.
If police are eventually able to determine the suspect’s identity, it is likely that he would face very serious criminal charges for armed robbery, illegal handgun possession, and other criminal offenses.
