Cops: Man In Obama Mask Robs South Florida McDonald’s

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say a man robbed a South Florida McDonald’s while wearing a President Barack Obama mask.

Riviera Beach police are seeking the public’s help in finding the suspect, who they say held employees at gunpoint early Saturday. The masked man ordered everyone into a back office and told the manager to put cash in a cloth bag.

The Palm Beach Post reports the suspect told employees he would kill them if they left the office. He got away with about $1,000.

Police say the suspect was about 6-feet tall and wore all black clothing and white gloves.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Riviera Beach Police Department at 561-845-4123.
