The Dairy Queen employees said a man had entered the western door and approached them demanding money while showing his black semi-auto handgun. The man was able to make off with an undisclosed amount of money from the restaurant and an employee's wallet. 

The robber also took the employees' and business phones to prevent them from calling 911. A 911 call was made by a customer in the drive-thru when the robbery occurred.
