The manager of a South Nashville fast food restaurant was able to distract a criminal as employees escaped through the back of the business during a robbery Wednesday morning, Metro police say.
Officers responded around 10 a.m. to the Taco Bell on Murfreesboro Pike at Millwood Drive for a reported robbery.
The manager told police that a man walked in, claimed he had a weapon and demanded cash.
At some point, officers said the man grabbed the cash drawer and took off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Witnesses reported seeing the robber leave the scene in a green Kia Soul.
