GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids police are searching for the two people who they say robbed a McDonald’s restaurant overnight.

It happened at the McDonald’s at 1100 Leonard St. NW just after midnight Saturday.

Police say two men in their late 20s entered the store wearing black clothing and masks covering their face. The suspects pointed a gun, hit an employee in the face with the gun, demanded money and even fired a round into the glass of the storefront on the way out, according to authorities.

Police say the employee hit in the face with the weapon was not seriously hurt.

Police are hoping surveillance video will help them get a better view of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Grand Rapids Police at (616) 456-3400 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345 or at http://www.silentobserver.org.

    This will only get more frequent as the city allows more low income (minority)apartments to be built on the West side.Provides easy access to hideout areas for future robberies.When the Tamarack/Leonard school is converted and the apartments on Stocking and 3rd are completed,the crime rate will explode.Protests should be made about THAT–not Trump taking office.Otherwise,time to move.
