Dunkin Robbery with car 1042016

A local Dunkin Donuts was robbed Tuesday morning, according to the Covington Police Department (CPD).

Reports said officers responded to an armed robbery at the restaurant, located at 3153 US Hwy 278 NE, around 2:34 a.m. on Oct. 4. The victim told officers that at around 1:35 a.m., he opened the back door of the restaurant after hearing a tapping on the door. When he opened it, a black male with a silver revolver walked in and told him to lie on the floor, reports said.

The suspect asked the victim to open the registers, but the victim said he did not know how to. The suspect then asked him to unlock the back door, but the victim said he did not have a key. The victim told police he then heard the suspect say, “Kick it open,” as if he was talking to another person.

According to reports, the suspect then stole the victim’s wallet and cell phone before forcing him to get in the freezer. The victim waited 15 minutes before attempting to use the office computer to get help, but he could not get through and instead went to Kroger to call 911.

The victim described the suspect to officers as a black male between 5-feet, 9-inches and 5-feet, 11-inches tall, slim build with a camouflage jacket. When viewing surveillance footage, officers observed two suspects.

Two store phones were taken from the Dunkin Donuts, but it is currently unknown if other items were stolen.
