Masked men hold McDonald’s customers and staff at gunpoint


TWO HOODED and masked men held customers and staff at McDonald’s in Denia at gunpoint in the early hours of last Friday morning.

They initially tried to enter the fast-food restaurant via its side door, but it was locked so they turned to customers sat on the terrace.

The thieves shouted ‘Money, money!’ (in English) – some customers thought it was a joke.

Trying the other side door to find it was also locked, they ran to the drive-thru window.

Staff inside were hiding in a small room in the kitchen and the thieves looted the drive-thru till of all its takings – it had not been emptied since midday the previous day.

They left on foot.

Police have opened an investigation with images taken from the CCTV cameras.
