Fairlawn Bojangles robbed Thursday night

The Fairlawn Bojangles was robbed Thursday night when an employee was strapped with a device he believed to be a bomb and was ordered to bring the robber money from the cash register.
Pulaski County Sheriff Jim Davis said police are looking for the masked suspect in the 11:50 p.m. incident at the new restaurant on Route 11.
The suspect, believed to be a white male, was last seen wearing black sweat pants, a black shirt and a mask. No other descriptors were available.
Davis said the employee was confronted while taking out the trash. He said the suspect assaulted the employee, then strapped a “small device” on the employee’s arm. The employee was told to go back inside the restaurant and bring the robber money from the cash register.
That employee told another employee upon entering the restaurant and “a small amount of cash” was taken to the suspect. “The suspect took the cash and the device from the employee’s arm and fled on foot,” the sheriff said.
Police found the device at the scene and it was rendered safe. Further investigation determined it was not a bomb.
Radford Police Department and Virginia State Police bomb technicians assisted with the investigation, which is continuing.
