HOUSTON — Police released surveillance video of an armed robbery at a McDonald’s in hopes that the public can identify the suspects involved.

This happened on late Monday just before midnight at the restaurant located in the 10300 block of the East Freeway.

Houston police say a dark green Nissan Xterra pulled up to the McDonald’s drive-thru at that time. As the employee approached the window, an unknown male pointed a handgun at her from inside the vehicle and then jumped out of the driver’s side rear door window and into the business.

The female employee then ran to the back of the business as the suspect chased after her, police said. When the suspect was unable to locate the female, he then ran back to the drive-thru window, jumped back out, and got back into the Xterra.
