Crime is never on the menu.
The incident occurred on Monday afternoon around 4:15 p.m., outside of a Chick-fil-A in the 4900 block of W. Broad Street, WTVR reports. According to the chicken-centric chain's locations page, this appears to be a Richmond restaurant.
Police say that employees were taking orders at the drive-thru and a man, standing nearby, slowly approached the workers, at least one of whom was standing outside.
"The male gradually walked closer to the store employees and demanded money while indicating he had a weapon," a police spokesperson said. "The suspect knocked down the store employee, grabbed the money, and was last seen running towards 50th Street, then across W. Broad Street near Willow Lawn Drive."
The suspect was described as between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet, between about 190 to 210 pounds. At the time of the crime, he was seen wearing a black jacket, light blue jeans and red sneakers.
