The Southern Regional Police Department is investigating an attempted armed robbery at the Wendy's on East Forest Avenue in Shrewsbury.
Police said the incident occurred just after midnight Saturday when a driver handed the drive-through attendant a note demanding cash and displayed a handgun.
When the driver looked away, the female employee slammed the drive-through window and dove for cover, police said. The vehicle then fled the area without getting any money.
Police said the driver was described as a thin black male wearing a white mask. The vehicle was described as a dark-colored sedan, possibly green in color. Anyone with information is asked to call the Southern Regional Police at (717) 235-3944..
