'Ironman' robs Little Rock restaurant


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Little Rock police say a man in an 'Ironman' mask robbed a local restaurant.

Officers were called to Five Guys Burger & Fries at 13000 Chenal Parkway Sunday just after 10 p.m.

The police report states the manager on duty told officers a man wearing an 'Ironman' mask with a silver handgun entered the store through the back by holding his gun to an employee's head and walking in. The suspect then demanded money. The manager said while in the office, the suspect reportedly told him to open the bottom of the safe, which is where the money drops are stored.

The manager suggested to police that only employees of the business commonly know of that part of the safe.

Officers said they searched the area with no results.
