On February 20, 2018 at approximately 6:15am, a white male wearing a blue hoodie, dark pants, gloves and black ski mask walked up on foot and ordered food at the Sonic located on the corner of 135th and Maple Street. Once he received the food, he followed the employee back in the store and forced her to open the safe. The cook ran out the back door and called 911. The male retrieved the money from the safe and locked the employee in the freezer. He then left on foot to the West. An employee reported seeing the suspect walking around the area shortly before the incident.
