Employees stop robbery at Youngstown McDonald's

Posted: Updated:

A tug of war between a robbery suspect and two McDonald's employees ended in one arrest.

Youngstown police say 28 year old Michael Orlando Matos is facing charges after an incident at the McDonald's restaurant on Fifth Avenue Thursday afternoon.

According to police, Matos approached a McDonald's employee at a register and demanded money.

Police say the employee tried to close her register, and that's when Matos attempted to grab the money and the two ended up in a fight.

An employee who was mopping the floor nearby jumped in to help, and Matos was finally subdued until police arrived.

No one was hurt.

Youngstown police used surveillance video from the restaurant and what they saw on the tape matched employee accounts of what happened.

Matos was taken to the Mahoning County jail and is facing a robbery charge.
