Police have identified a man they believe robbed a Second Street McDonald’s employee Thursday, although officers are withholding his name until he is arrested.

A second suspect involved in the incident has not yet been found or charged, police spokesman Maj. Greg Riley said.

Williamsburg Police have obtained warrants charging one unidentified suspect with robbery, abduction, strangulation, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and possession of a concealed weapon, Riley said.

The McDonald’s employee reported being robbed at gunpoint Thursday evening while out by the store’s dumpster, according to police.

The employee said he was near the dumpster at 5:50 p.m. when he was approached by two men who drove up in a black sedan, Riley said.

One of the men who approached the employee had a handgun. One of the men took the wallet from the employee and left the scene in an unknown direction, Riley said.

The employee was not injured, and he was not able to provide a description of the two men who robbed him, Riley said.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or Williamsburg Police at 220-2331.
