Knife-wielding suspects rob KFC in west Fort Worth

FORT WORTH -- Two knife-wielding suspects robbed a Fort Worth Kentucky Fried Chicken late Friday, forcing one employee of the fast-food restaurant to lie on the floor while another filled a bag with the money they had demanded.

Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said the two men entered the Kentucky Fried Chicken-Pizza Inn at 9616 White Settlement Road about 10:20 p.m. and approached a 32-year-old employee as she was walking toward a back office to conduct a money count.

One suspect was carrying a big stick and the other a knife when they demanded that the employee give them all the money. A witness who was washing dishes heard the employee call out. As he rounded the corner, he was confronted by the knife-wielding suspect, who forced him to lie on the floor.

After the female employee franctically shoved money and coins into a bag, the two suspects fled on foot across White Settlement Road to a dark-colored car parked in a pharmacy parking lot. They escaped with an undetermined amount of cash.

Neither the restaurant or pharmacy had surveillance cameras
