The incident happened on Northside Drive when employees noticed a man walking around in the parking lot. That man then entered the restroom of the restaurant.

According to police, the man was wearing an "angry clown mask," which hid his face. He described the man as a black male who was also wearing a black hoodie and tan pants.

The suspect demanded the belongings of everyone in the restaurant. The suspect also grabbed the cash register as he left.
