MANCHESTER, CT (WFSB) -

A man armed with a machete robbed a Dunkin' Donuts in Manchester during the early morning hours of Monday, according to police.

Police said it happened around 5 a.m. on Hartford Road.

They said the man was wearing black sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses and a red scarf covering his face.

He attempted to walk through the front door, but it was still locked, according to police. That's when he decided to climb in through the drive-thru window.

Police said he forced two employees to the floor and ordered a third to retrieve an unknown amount of cash from a register.

There's no word on what he took.

Investigators said the suspect eventually fled through the drive-thru window.

They released surveillance pictures Monday afternoon.

No one was hurt.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Manchester Police Department at 860-645-5510, or the main line at 860-645-5500.
