Seventh Squad detectives are looking for three suspects who robbed a McDonald's at gunpoint early Thursday in Massapequa -- a driver and two masked men who forced themselves through the restaurant's drive-through window -- Nassau County police said.

One of the suspects drove a late-model Nissan to the McDonald's at 5500 Sunrise Hwy. at about 3:51 a.m., placing a drive-through order, police said.

When the car came to the window to pay for the order, a female employee, 20, opened it.

Two suspects on foot then forced their way into the restaurant through the window, police said. One of them, armed with a handgun, forced the employee to the floor, while the second demanded money from a another employee, a woman, also 20.

The two men took an unknown amount of cash from the registers and office safe, police said, and then fled "through the same window in an unknown direction."

The women, the only two employees in the restaurant at the time of the robbery, were not injured, police said.

Police also said they are looking for the driver but had no description.

The two men wore hooded sweatshirts and bandannas to cover their faces, police said.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
