2402 S. Park Street (McDonald's)


Zachary A. Gonzales, 26-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Armed Robbery (Attempt To Commit)




Shortly after 7:18pm, Madison Police Officers responded reference an armed robbery in progress. Officers immediately set up a perimeter around the building, and after obtaining a description of the suspect, taking into account that there were a number of innocent customers in the lobby of the restaurant, officers decided to enter and took a male subject into custody at gun point.

The suspect was identified as Zachary Gonzalez, and he had approached McDonald's staff demanding money. The implication of a weapon, and the threat to harm staff if they did not give him cash, led to 911 being called. Quick actions on the part of all parties resulted in Gonzalez being arrested. No one was harmed in this incident.
