Police are on the lookout for a brazen robber who held up a Wendy’s restaurant in Bayside on Aug. 8.

The suspect entered the fast-food eatery at 220-06 Northern Blvd. at 9:40 p.m. and displayed a black revolver. He then jumped over the counter and demanded the cash registers be opened.

The robber took an unspecified amount of cash and fled the scene on foot. A security camera at Wendy’s, aimed at the registers, shows the criminal taking money behind the counter.

The suspect is described as a male black, approximately 25 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was wearing a maroon windbreaker, red polo shirt, blue shorts, white leggings, white sneakers and a dark colored hat and was carrying a dark backpack.

Anyone with information about this robbery is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-(800)-577-TIPS. The public can also provide tips by logging onto the Crimestoppers website at nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting 274637 and then enter TIP577.

All tips are kept confidential.

Welcome to the discussion.
