(Scroll down for video) A woman working at a McDonald’s, was shocked when a customer came to the drive-thru window with a gun.

Ocala police said that the man was waiting behind a vehicle in the drive-thru lane.

When that SUV moved away, the suspect walked up to the window at the McDonald’s located at 3595 W. Silver Springs Blvd.

He did not place an order. Instead, he pulled himself up and went head first into the store while holding a gun.

Detectives have released surveillance video, which shows the man getting into the store through the window. He did not appear to point the gun at the worker.

As the worker moved out of the way, the suspect leaned half of his body inside the restaurant and grabbed the cash register that was filled with money, and he fled.

Police are urging anyone with information to call Detective Mat Steckman of the Ocala Police Department at 352-369-7147. Or if you know the suspect and you want to remain anonymous, you are urged call Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP (7867).
