According to the Fremont Police Department, the take-over robbery was reported at about 9:50 a.m. at the McDonald’s located at 4318 Thornton Ave.
Two suspects armed with handguns and wearing masks entered the fast food restaurant, demanded cash and shoved all of the employees into a walk-in refrigerator where the suspects ordered them to stay.
