Man Wearing Makeup Attempts to Rob McDonald's

A man wearing heavy makeup and brandishing a gun attempted to rob a McDonald's in Vista Thursday night, according to deputies.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department says an unknown man wearing a lot of makeup walked into the North County fast food restaurant located at 827 S. Santa Fe just before 7 p.m. and pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at the manager of the McDonald's.

The employees went to the back of the business during the robbery attempt, though it's not clear whether the suspect ordered them to do so.

Deputies say the man ultimately left the restaurant without taking anything. Police describe the suspect as 5-foot-5 and 140 pounds. He was wearing a black-and-grey sweatshirt and Dickie-brand pants.

No injuries were reported.
