EGLESTON SQ.—The Boston Police Department has released descriptions of two suspects in a Feb. 25 armed robbery of the McDonald’s restaurant at 3064 Washington St.

The two men reportedly ate at the restaurant, then returned around 11 p.m. They entered through a back door and brandished a pistol while robbing the restaurant. The pistol had the style of a TEC-9, which has a long magazine and looks like a submachine gun.

Both suspects are black males in their late teens or early 20s. Suspect 1 is about 6 feet tall; 200 pounds; medium athletic build; light brown complexion; and possibly light facial hair. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with white drawstrings under a black or dark gray zipper-front jacket with shoulder lapels. He also wore a black knit hat with a white emblem. Police describe the suspect as walking with a “strange gait.”

Suspect 2 is about 5-feet-8-inches tall; 230 pounds; “round, chubby face”; dark complexion; and wearing a goatee. He was wearing a black knit hat and a black hooded sweatshirt.

BPD has released security video footage and still images of the suspects, which are available at bpdnews.com/blog.
