Royal Oak police say a McDonald's restaurant was nearly robbed Tuesday on Woodward Avenue.
Police say a woman in her 20s with long brown hair placed an order at the drive-thru speaker. When she pulled her vehicle up to the window to pay she pointed a black handgun at the cashier and demanded all of the money.
The cashier quickly left the window and the suspect fled the area in the red sport utility vehicle. She did not get any money.
Police are reviewing surveillance video but say it is poor quality.
