Woman robbed at gunpoint at Buffalo Grove fast food restaurant, police say
Buffalo Grove police are investigating the Wednesday afternoon robbery of a woman held up at gunpoint at a fast food restaurant.
The woman told police she was visiting the Subway sandwich shop at 1008 Weiland Road in Buffalo Grove at around 2:40 p.m. Wednesday , when someone who she said appeared to be holding a silver-colored handgun approached her and demanded money.
The robber was described as a male with light skin, possibly 5’ 8” to 5’ 10” tall, wearing a white or light gray jacket with a dark gray hood, and dark-colored pants.
He was last seen headed south from the area on foot, and police said a K-9 tracking of the man indicates that, after the robbery, he may have entered a parked vehicle on Bentley Place, then left the area in an unknown direction.
Police said the woman was not hurt in the robbery, which remains under investigation.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Buffalo Grove Police Department at (847) 459-2560.
