Suspects Leave Empty-Handed in McDonald's Robbery Try

Wednesday morning incident happened at the restaurant on Broadway in downtown Little Rock.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - An unsuccessful restaurant robbery attempt has led to the arrest of two Jacksonville men by Little Rock Police.

The botched holdup happened shortly after 2:00 this morning at the McDonald's on Broadway in downtown.

Christopher Davis, 23, and Christopher Murray, 24, are being held at the Pulaski County Jail. Davis is charged with aggravated robbery and fleeing. Police say Murray was driving the car used in the crime. A third suspect has not yet been identified.

Police called to the scene spotted the getaway car driving away with its headlights off. When officers stopped the car, the driver stayed inside but another man jumped out and ran away. Police lost sight of him at 9th & Center after a footchase. Davis was later found hiding in a dumpster near 8th & Louisiana as police searched the area. He was caught after a short footchase.

A McDonald's worker told police three men came into the restaurant and ordered her at gunpoint to open the safe. When she had trouble getting the safe open, the men left empty-handed. The police report states that one McDonald's worker jumped out the drive-thru window to call police when the suspects barged inside.

While officers were on the way to McDonald's they thought the nearby Taco Bell had also been robbed, but later learned that workers there called to report the McDonald's robbery.

Police say a gun, backpack, clothing, masks and gloves were confiscated from the getaway car.
