Police investigate armed robbery at Haverford Township Burger King

- Police say they are investigating an armed robbery in Haverford Township.

Breaking in the drive-thru window and crawling inside to commit a gunpoint robbery isn't exactly on the menu at a Burger King in Haverford Township; however, Monday police say an armed suspect decided to give it a try.

It happened just as the Burger King on West Chester Pike closed for the night. The doors were locked so police say the gun-toting bandit picked up a big rock and threw it through the drive up window.

The gunman clearly wasn't looking for a Whopper and fries. According to police, he dragged and forced terrified employees to the rear of the Burger King at gunpoint and then ripped out the cash register draw.

The suspect wore a white bandana over his face and gloves. He escaped out the back door with an unknown amount of cash. 

Philadelphia police are now trying to link the Haverford bandit to a similar robbery at a McDonald's at 56th and Vine three hours after the Haverford robbery.

No one was seriously injured. Burger King referred us to the general manager. The employees were shaken up and will return to work after a couple days off.
