Surveillance video captured the moment earlier this month when a gun-toting masked man reached into the drive-thru window of a Philadelphia McDonald's and ripped out the cash register.

What are the details?

Philadelphia police said in a YouTube video description of the crime that an employee of the fast-food joint in the 4100 block of Whitaker Ave. was working the drive-thru around 3:25 a.m. Nov. 4 when a red SUV containing four occupants approached the window after ordering food.

Police said the suspect who was seated behind the driver reached toward the witness while pointing a handgun stating, "Give me the money."

The armed suspect appeared to be standing outside the window in the video with the SUV positioned a foot or two behind the gunman.

When the employee backed away, police said the suspect reached into the window and took the cash register, which contained an undetermined amount of money.

Police said the SUV was driven from the scene in an unknown direction.

No injuries were reported, and no arrests have been made, Fox News reported.

Police cautioned that if the suspect in question is spotted, do not approach and instead call 911 immediately. To submit a tip via telephone, dial 215-686-TIPS (8477) or text a tip to 215-686-TIPS (8477), police said, adding that all tips will be confidential. In addition, police said anyone with information about this crime or this suspect can contact the East Detective Division at 215-686-3243/3244.
