A masked man used a toy gun to rob a Burger King in Chicago, police said.

Police arrested the man shortly afterwards after he took an undetermined amount of money, officials said.

At about 3pm Friday, the man walked into the fast food restaurant in the 2300 block of South Michigan Avenue and demanded money. There were customers in the restaurant, some of whom escaped through a back door.

The restaurant manager noticed that the gun was fake and ripped the man's mask off.

Witnesses said the man ran from the restaurant and was arrested nearby at about 24th Street and South Wabash.
