Police are looking for a man who attempted to rob the Revelstoke McDonald’s with a fake handgun Monday night.

The incident happened on Monday, Sept. 24, at around 10 p.m. when a white male entered the McDonald’s brandishing a black imitation long-barrel handgun, said Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen in a press release.

The culprit was wearing dark coloured clothing and was carrying a backpack. He demanded money from the cash register but was denied and chased away by restaurant employees.

He was last seen headed in the direction of the Sandman Hotel. Police patrols failed to locate the suspect and the investigation is continuing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP detachment at 250-837-5255 or call CrimeStoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
