Baltimore County Police continue to investigate a robbery at Arby's, 11025 York Road in Cockeysville, Saturday evening after the suspect fired at least one shot at an employee.

Just after 7 p.m. the suspect, a black male with medium build, entered Arby's and displayed a handgun, demanding money from the cash register. The employee was unable to immediately access the register, apparently causing the suspect to become agitated. The suspect fired a single round in the direction of the employee, who was not struck, then punched the employee in the stomach with his fist. 

The suspect fled in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with information on this suspect or crime is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. This crime continues to be investigated by the Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit.
