— A man who robbed a Goldsboro restaurant over the weekend locked several employees in a freezer before fleeing, police said.

A man went into the Wendy’s on Wayne Memorial Drive at about 7:20 a.m. Saturday holding what appeared to be a handgun. After demanding money, the man locked the employees in the restaurant's walk-in freezer, police said.

The man was described as black, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, between 150 and 170 pounds and wearing a dark brown jacket. His face was partially covered, but the employees said he had very light brown eyes.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at 919-735-2255.
