McDonald’s robbers leave empty handed

BEAUMONT — Beaumont Police are looking for two men who bullied their way inside a McDonald’s to rob them but left empty handed.

The incident began around 4:58 a.m. Monday at the 190 I-10 North location after an employee unlocked the door to let and off-duty employee out. At that time two men — one 5-foot 5- inches to 5-foot 6-inches tall and the other 5-foot 10 inches to 5-foot 11-inches tall wearing dark glasses with bandanas over their faces — pushed the employee back inside while the off-duty employee walked out of the store, according to information from Beaumont Police Department.

One suspect stood by the employee while the other attempted to rob the store.

The suspects were unsuccessful in locating money and fled the scene on foot. An extensive search of the area was conducted, however, the suspects were unable to be located. No one was injured during the robbery. Detectives are asking anyone with information to call the Beaumont Police Department at 409-832-1234 or Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS (8477).
