Police Seeking Tips on Armed Robbery of McDonald’s in Queens

The police are looking for a robber who forced workers at a McDonald’s in Queens into a walk-in freezer at gunpoint on Thursday.

The man entered the restaurant, at 181-25 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, around 10:50 p.m. on Thursday and hid in the bathroom, the police said. Around 1 a.m., after the store had closed, the man came out of the bathroom wearing a mask, pulled a semiautomatic handgun, forced two of the three workers into the freezer and directed the third worker to open the safe, the police said.
