Knife-wielding Santa robs KFC restaurant, police say

Police in England are searching for a Santa Claus that has clearly been naughty instead of nice.

A robber dressed as St. Nick climbed through the drive-through window of a KFC restaurant in Alfreton on Saturday, raided the safe and threatened staff with a knife, authorities say.

The masked man, described as being 5 ft. 10 and wearing a red hat, red pants and a red jacket, made off with an unspecified amount of cash, the Press Association reports.

"Thankfully, the restaurant was shut and no one was hurt, but we are offering employees any support they need,” a KFC spokesman told The Derby Telegraph.
