North St. Louis (KSDK) - An unidentified woman was hospitalized after allegedly robbing a fast food restaurant in north St. Louis early Monday, then jumping from a building's roof when police were closing in on her.

Investigators tell NewsChannel 5 the woman pulled into the drive thru window at the White Castle on Hebert Street and North Florissant around 2:45 a.m. and passed the clerk a note demanding money.

The employee handed a locked cash drawer to the woman who then drove away.  Police tracked the woman's car to the 1900 block of Warren Street and entered a building where she was located.

The woman then jumped from the third floor roof of the building and was seriously injured in the fall.

Police took her into custody and are expected to apply for arrest warrants later this morning.  No one was hurt at the White Castle during the hold-up.

Money believed to have been taken from the fast food eatery was recovered from the suspect's residence on Wednesday.
