GJPD Investigating Armed Robbery at KFC on North Ave #GVCopBeat

Posted on Updated on

imageThe Grand Junction Police Department is investigating an armed robbery that took place at the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant just after 8:30 this morning.

There was one employee inside the store at the time of the robbery. At this point in the investigation we believe the man walked into the restaurant, threatened the employee with a gun, took and undisclosed amount of cash, and then ran out the back of the restaurant heading south on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male with a medium to skinny build, wearing a light green coat and carrying an orange backpack.

As a precaution we notified staff at CMU and put nearby schools and daycare centers into Shelter in Place while we conduct our investigation.

We will release more information as it becomes available.
