Detroit police were seeking a suspect in an armed robbery reported late Thursday at a west-side McDonald's restaurant.

The suspect smashed the front-door glass of the restaurant in the 21000 block of Grand River about 9:45 p.m., jumped over the counter and stole money from the cash register before fleeing, Officer Vanessa Burt said. Employees ran out of the back door, she said.

A description of the suspect was not yet available. Authorities did not disclose how much cash was taken.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department Eighth Precinct at (313) 596-5800. Anonymous tips also can be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
