COLORADO SPRINGS – Springs Police say a suspect fired a gun while robbing a Wendy’s restaurant at Academy and Montebello Tuesday night.
Police said a man armed with a handgun robbed the restaurant a little before 8 p.m., while numerous people were inside. No one was hurt when the man fired his gun.
The suspect wore a mask and wore winter clothing. This is at least the second robbery in recent weeks where a suspect fired a shot while robbing a fast food restaurant in Colorado Springs.
Recently, a suspect fired a single shot while robbing the Subway at Academy and Palmer Park on Nov. 21. In that robbery, a clerk suffered minor injuries.
The suspect in that robbery was described as a heavy-set 5’8 white man who was wearing jeans. Police said he might have left in a four-door sedan.
Police have not said if these two cases are related.
If you have information about either robbery, call Colorado Springs Police at 719-444-7000.
