State police are looking for a man who tried to rob a Wendy's through the drive-through window on Sunday.

The man, driving a burgundy vehicle with a sunroof, pulled up to the window about 4:50 p.m. at the restaurant on West Main Street in South Union, police said.

He “ordered the workers to give ... money,” said police spokeswoman Stefani Plume. “The workers shut the drive-through window.”

The man drove off. He's described as a white man wearing an Under Armour shirt around his face, a black hat and a black and gold hooded sweatshirt with a stripe on the hood.

Plume said the incident could be related to a robbery about 5:15 p.m. Saturday at a McDonald's in Redstone Township. There's no evidence linking the two, she said, but the incidents were close together.

A man armed with what appeared to be a semiautomatic handgun held up the McDonald's on Roberts Road.

Police said he is white, 20 to 30 years old, wearing a dark mask, a black hat, a black coat and dark-colored pants. He fled in a reddish, four-door vehicle with a sunroof.

Anyone with information regarding the Wendy's incident is asked to call state police in Uniontown at 724-439-7111. Anyone with information about the McDonald's robbery is asked to call state police in Belle Vernon at 724-929-6262.
