Burger King and AT&T robbed -- Frederick, MD

A Burger King employee was robbed at gunpoint about 9:20 p.m. Saturday, according to the Frederick Police Department.

The employee told police the robber ran toward the back of the building at 1302 E. Patrick St.

Officer First Class Charles Snyder and his police dog Rony followed a possible track, but it ended at a road behind the business. That caused police to believe the robber may have left in a vehicle.

No arrests had been made as of Sunday afternoon. An undisclosed amount of money was stolen.

A crime scene unit collected evidence at the scene.

The clerk, who was not injured, described the robber as a white or possibly Hispanic man with long, scruffy hair. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black sneakers. His face was partially covered.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the police agency at 301-600-2100. Anonymous calls also may be taken at 301-600-8477 or tips may sent in by text message to 240-674-8477.

Meanwhile, city police also continue to seek information on a burglary earlier Saturday at the AT&T store in the 1100 block of West Patrick Street.

At 2:45 a.m., officers responded to the store after a call about a burglary.

A review of surveillance tapes show two black men dressed in dark clothes breaking into the store and stealing merchandise, Cpl. Kirk Henneberry said.

No arrests had been made as of Sunday.
