COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police have caught up with a man they say held up the Northeast Side fast-food restaurant where he worked.

Columbus Robbery Unit detectives say Lovell Hawkins, 45, walked into the McDonalds at 4840 N. Hamilton Road, where he was employed, at 12:31 Wednesday morning and demanded that the manager open the safe and given him the money inside, implying that he had a handgun in his hoodie.

Hawkins allegedly walked to the front of the restaurant where he stuck a gun into the side of another employee and demanded that he open the cash register, police said.

Hawkins then allegedly took the cash and left the store.

Detectives interviewed the victims who positively identified Mr. Hawkins as the person that had robbed them.

Detectives say Hawkins was arrested later that day on a charge of aggravated robbery.
