CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A handgun-wielding man held up the McDonald's restaurant on Washington Street Tuesday night, demanding money from the store's safe, cash registers and employees, police said.

The store was closed when the man entered through a side door that had been propped open, said Charles Town Police Patrolman John Jeffries.

The man, who wore a ski mask, got money from the safe, registers and store employees, although it is not known how much, Jeffries said.

"He pointed the gun at one of the managers and demanded it," Jeffries said.

Although store employees tried to determine how much money was stolen Tuesday night after the 11:22 p.m. holdup, no amount was available Wednesday, Jeffries said.

The robber, described as a light-skinned black male, was wearing a black ski mask pulled over his face, black gloves, black pants and a blue jacket. He weighed about 150 pounds, was about 6 feet tall and carried a black duffel bag, Jeffries said.

The man fled on foot from the restaurant and headed toward nearby Edge Hill Cemetery on East Congress Street, Jeffries said.
