The Valley Police Department is investigating a robbery of an area Waffle House early Wednesday morning.
Valley police officers were called to the Waffle House, at 2800 20th Ave., about 3 a.m. in reference to a robbery that had recently occurred, police said.
Officers met with the cashier and witnesses who said that the robber entered the restaurant and approached the cashier. He told the cashier to give him the money from the register and indicated that he was armed with a weapon, police said.
Once the cashier opened the register, the robber took an undetermined amount of money. He left on foot and was last seen walking toward the rear of the building, police said.
Police describe the robber at a 40- to 50-year-old black man who is about 5-feet 11-inches tall to 6-feet tall with some “scruffy” facial hair. The suspect was wearing khaki pants and an orange T-shirt at the time of the incident.
Police ask that anyone who knows the suspect to call the Police Department at 334-756-5200 or the Valley Area Crime Stoppers at 334-756-8200.
