Taco Bell Crime of the Week!
Police are searching for a man who brandished a gun at the Taco Bell on Route 9W and later asked for a job.
The man, whose description was sketchy , entered the fast-food restaurant just after 2 p.m. Monday and pointing a gun at the cashier, demanded money and told the cashier to get on the floor, said Lt. John Hickey of the Haverstraw Police Department.
The man then walked into the manager's office, which is located at the back of the store.
"He requested an application for employment and the manager said 'No,'" Hickey said. The manager asked the suspect to leave; he left the premises in an unknown direction.
The manager didn't see the attempted holdup. The suspect did not point the gun at the manager, said Lt. Peter Murphy.
No money was taken from Taco Bell, police said.
