Police: South Union Dairy Queen robber struck twice
The same man robbed two Uniontown-area businesses Friday and Saturday, state police said.
The unidentified man entered the Dairy Queen on West Main Street in South Union around 6:15 p.m. Friday, handed an employee a note that said, “Give me all the money. I'm desperate,” and said he had a gun, police said. The employee gave the man money from the cash register, and then he fled in a white 2009 Chevy Impala, with a PA license plate of GSD9849, which had been reported stolen earlier Friday from Uniontown, police said.
The unidentified man walked into the Exxon gas station on Route 51 in North Union around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. He demanded money, said he had a gun, and an employee gave him $80. The man left in a white Chevy Impala.
Police described the man as white, middle aged, with brown hair and some facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, blue Ecko Unlimited long sleeve T-shirt, blue denim shorts, white socks, black sneakers and black sunglasses.
Anyone with information is asked to call state police in Uniontown at 724-439-7111.
