Police are looking for a robber who hid in the bathroom of a McDonald's restaurant in Reynoldsburg for about an hour before striking.

As part of Central Ohio Crime Stoppers' Crime of the Week, detectives are hoping that someone has information leading to an arrest or indictment of the robber. A cash reward is being offered.

The robber, who was dressed in dark clothing and wore a hooded sweatshirt, wore a medical mask over the lower half of his face. He also had an eyebrow piercing.

The robbery took place at 11:25 p.m. April 11 at the McDonald's near Brice Road and East Main Street. The man entered the restaurant at 10:10 p.m. and waited until the lobby doors were locked.

He then left the bathroom, brandished a handgun and ordered the manager to open the safe.

Anyone with information can call 614-461-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online at stopcrime.org.
