Windsor Police are continuing their investigation after a west end restaurant located in the 2100 block of Wyandotte Street West was robbed at gunpoint just after midnight.
The 24 year old male employee at the restaurant told police that he had just finished serving a customer who had exited the store, and then seconds later, the suspect entered the front door of the restaurant and immediately pointed a black handgun at the employee who was behind the serving counter. The suspect walked around the counter and demanded that the employee open the cash register and then back away from it. The employee complied with the suspect’s demands and watched as the suspect reached into the till removing a quantity of cash and stuff it into his pant pocket. The suspect then fled on foot out of the west door of the restaurant and was last seen running southbound on Randolph Street.
The suspect is described as a white male, 25 years, 5’7″ tall and approximately 170 lbs. He had light coloured eyebrows. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head. He also was wearing a navy blue scarf covering the lower half of his face. He also wore blue jeans. The suspect was carrying a black semi automatic handgun.
Police say that the suspect in this robbery is very similar in description to the suspect responsible for the previous armed robberies recently in the east end of the city.
Anyone with any information regarding this or the previous robberies, or the identity of the suspect to call WPS Investigations at 519-255-6700 ext 4830 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-TIPS (8477).
