Shawnee Police say they are investigating the armed robbery of the Wendy's restaurant at 11450 Shawnee Mission Parkway.
Major Dan Tennis says officers were called at approximately 11:13 Tuesday night, after a man entered and demanded cash.
"He was armed with a small black handgun," says Maj. Tennis.
Employees complied with the man's demands, handing over an undisclosed amount of cash.
Operation 100 News has learned that the store employees were then locked inside an office, before the man left the business.
Major Tennis says, "a police K-9 searched the area but the suspect was not located."
The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic male, about 6ft tall, 160-200lbs, with black hair. He was last seen wearing a navy blue or black hoodie, black sweat pants, and a navy blue mask.
Employees told police that a black 2003-2010 Chevrolet Impala with dark tinted windows was seen circling the parking lot prior to the robbery.
No injuries were reported.
