RIVIERA BEACH, Fla., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they are working to identify a man who wore a mask modeled after the face of President Barack Obama while robbing a McDonald's.

Riviera Beach Police said the man wore the Obama mask when he entered the McDonald's on Broadway at 6:21 a.m. Saturday and displayed a silver, semiautomatic handgun, The Palm Beach Post reported Friday.

The man ordered workers into a back room and forced the manager to open the safe and place the cash into a cloth bag.

Police said the man, described as 6 feet tall and approximately 170 pounds, fled in a northeast direction with about $1,000 cash.
