A man robbed a cashier at the Hardee's on Second Street early Thursday morning.

York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating a report that a man took an undisclosed amount of money from a cashier around 5:36 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release posted to YPSO's Facebook page.

The suspect – described as a 6-foot tall black man with a slender build who wore a white hair net, a multi-colored khaki shirt and bluish gray pants – implied he had a gun, but never showed it to the three employees in the store at that time.

No one was injured during the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP or the Facebook Tip Line at 890-4999.

YPSO does not believe the Hardee's robbery is related to the three armed robberies in July, which have yielded no arrests to date.

In early July, a man and woman said a masked man abducted them from a parking lot off Francis and West Duke of Gloucester streets in the city, then forced them to withdraw money from various ATMs in the area.

A day later, a masked man robbed a grocery clerk at gunpoint in Upper York County.

On July 9, a man wearing a mask robbed the Langley Federal Credit Union on Richmond Road in the City of Williamsburg.
