ROCKFORD - One man is under arrest for allegedly robbing a local McDonald's.
Eric Elliot, 20, is charged with armed robbery. The incident happened just before 11pm Wednesday. Police say three suspects, dressed in all black clothing, entered the McDonald's at 4355 11th St.. One of them pulled out a gun and demanded cash.
An employee complied and the suspects fled the scene. Officers found the getaway car at 4th St. and 23rd Avenue, but it was abandoned. However, with the help of a Belvidere K-9 Unit, investigators found Elliot hiding underneath a vehicle.
Elliot is currently in custody at the Winnebago County Jail. He'll make his first court appearance Friday.
