The McDonald's located at 3073 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Oakland Park was once again targeted by the same subdued robber who hit the restaurant back in March. Like before, the robbery was so subtle that the families sitting just feet away from the incident had no clue that it was happening.
Just after 9 a.m. on May 31, an unidentified man in his 30s with a medium build, wearing a hoody, white ball cap and sunglasses walked in and approached an employee at the register. He demanded money and placed his hand inside the hoody to imply that he had a gun.
The cashier complied, but that didn't stop the robber from discreetly reaching over the counter and grabbing all the cash.
Detectives believe this is the same robber who on the afternoon of March 3, robbed the same restaurant. On that day, he wore a baseball cap and long sleeve T-shirt. He patiently waited for his turn in line. He placed an order, and once the register was open, he demanded all the money. To drive the point home, he calmly lifted his shirt to reveal the gun he had tucked into the waistband of his shorts.
