Jacksonville Police Department officials said they are on the hunt for three unknown who robbed the Dairy Queen on U.S. 79 last week.
Detective Sgt. Daniel Franklin said three armed subjects entered the restaurant at about 10 p.m. Oct. 19.
“Three subjects total entered the Dairy Queen, two appeared to have pistols, the third appeared to have a long rifle,” he said.
He said that because the subjects were wearing ski masks and gloves, race, age and other defining factors are still unavailable.
“One manager was struck in the mouth, however it is unknown as to with what he was struck — possibly a handgun or a hand,” Franklin said. “He was transported to a local hospital in a private vehicle.
“The door to the office was kicked in and cash was taken from the night’s till.”
According to J.N. Grimes, owner of the franchise location, the amount taken was a little more than $1,000.
As of yet, there are no suspects, however security video footage from the restaurant and eye witness accounts are being used to help identify the criminals.
