BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge Police are investigating an armed robbery that happened Monday morning at the Jack in the Box on Scenic Highway in Baton Rouge.

Just after 3 a.m., a gold colored Chevrolet Cavalier pulled into the drive-thru lane and parked. That is when police say a man got out of the car and climbed through the drive-thru window and demanded money from two employees.

With an undetermined amount of money, the suspect climbed out of the drive-thru window and got back into his vehicle.

Later, police saw the vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle. Police tried to stop the vehicle, but the suspect tried to get away and ultimately crashed. The suspect then got out of the vehicle and started running; that is when the suspect fired at least one shot. Police say no one was injured.

The suspect is described as a black male, 5'8" to 5'10" with a medium build. He has a light brown complexion. He was last seen wearing a black and white stripped hoodie, a gray t-shirt and a red hat.
