MORRIS HEIGHTS -

Police say a man used a deep fryer basket as a weapon during an assault and robbery inside a McDonald's in Morris Heights.

They say he walked into the fast food restaurant on University Avenue last Friday and was told by employees that the store was closed.

Authorities say the man then got into a fight with two women working there, and hit one of them with a deep fryer basket before punching the other in the face.

The suspect left with a set of keys.
