WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police are looking for a suspect accused of robbing a Cook-Out restaurant at gunpoint early Friday morning in Winston-Salem.

Police said the suspect approached an employee taking out the trash around 4:15 a.m. at 4505 Kester Mill Road.

The suspect was armed and ordered the employee back inside the business, according to police. The suspect then allegedly forced the victims to give him money and he ran off in an unknown direction.

A police K-9 led to a red toboggan with attached fake “dreadlocks” being recovered in the 700 block of Jonestown Road.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, about 5’9” and 160 to 180 pounds. Police said he had a shoulder-length “dreadlock” hairstyle, a red toboggan, black jacket, dark jeans and a black handgun.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with any information can call Winston-Salem police at 773-7700.
