Officers responded to the 8500 block of Colesville Road around 12:15 p.m. for an armed robbery.

The investigation determined that the suspect entered the restaurant and waited in line. While waiting, the suspect became irate and eventually cut to the front of the line.

When the cashier told the suspect he needed to wait in line, the suspect pulled a folding knife from his waistband, jumped over the counter and demanded the cashier give him the money from the register.
