At about 8:15 p.m., the suspect -- described by employees as 19-20 years of age, 5-foot-4, with a dark complexion and skinny build -- walked up to the counter of the restaurant, at 1212 Manchester Expressway, wearing an orange shirt, tan cargo pants and knee-high red socks.

He took an undisclosed amount of money and ran away.

Detectives were called to the scene; the case is under investigation.
