Police are investigating an armed robbery at Bush’s Chicken in North Waco late Sunday night, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Officers were called to the Bush’s Chicken at 3632 N. 19th St. shortly after 11 p.m., when a man entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money from a store employee. Swanton said the man was given an undisclosed amount of money before he left the store.

The suspect was described as wearing a baseball hat, black T-shirt, black pants, had dreadlocks and was about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. Swanton said he weighed about 220 pounds.

No one was hurt in the incident. It was unclear if any customers were inside the business at the time of the robbery.

Swanton said police continue to investigate the robbery and no arrests were made by Monday afternoon.
