A drive-thru customer provided suspect information to Wichita Police after he saw a robbery inside a fast food store.
"While sitting in a drive-thru at the local Burger King, located in 500 North Oliver, (he) observed what he described as a black male jumping the counter and threatening two of the employees from Burger King with a box cutter," said Lt. Steve Kinney.
The robbery happened Monday at 7:20 p.m. An employee put money in a sack, and the suspect took off.
The customer in the drive-thru called 911 and provided a description of the suspect and the getaway car. The suspect was said to be 40-50 years old, wearing a reddish-brown wig, a black hat and a black jacket with gold stripes, emblazoned with the number 24 on the back.
The suspect's car was a gold four-door with a license plate of 584 EDD. The suspect is still on the loose.
Kinney said the customer did a great job helping officers.
"That's the perfect way of handling it," Kinney said. "Get it on the phone, give the best information that you can provide, continue to give dispatch updates as far as you have it - as far as when the suspect left the store, what kind of vehicle he got into, if you can get a tag without endangering yourself, get a tag number and provide that to dispatch."
No one was injured in the robbery.
