George Dudley, Jr. and Darrin Mitchell
Two men are behind bars following an armed robbery of a fast food restaurant.

State Police says Darrin Mitchell of New Castle, and George Dudley, Junior of Philadelphia, face charges including robbery, conspiracy, and possession of a firearm.

The pair approached an employee of the Wendy's restaurant in the Eden Square Shopping Center on Route 40 in Bear Saturday night, as he sat outside during a break.

They ordered the man inside, forced three employees into a walk in freezer at gunpoint, and ordered the manager to open the restaurant's safe.

One employee managed to run and call police, and the pair was taken into custody thanks to a witness who got the tag number from their getaway car.
