FAST-FOOD OUTLET ROBBED BY TWO; EMPLOYEE IS CUT

Two robbers, armed with a handgun and a machete, took about $1,000 in a holdup at the Burger King at Pine Ridge Road and Genesee Street in Cheektowaga early Tuesday.

Two males in their 20s, wearing black ski masks, forced the manager to open the safe as he and a female employee were preparing to close for the night at 12:30 a.m., town police reported.

The woman was cut with the machete when one of the men ordered her to crawl on the floor to avoid being seen by passers-by, and he used the machete to prod her along, police said. Police said she did not require treatment.
