WATCH: Man holds up Chick-fil-A in Sarasota at gunpoint

SARASOTA (WWSB) - A man who held up the Chick-fil-A on Fruitville Road in Sarasota Friday night is still being sought after managing to slip past a police perimeter.

There was a heavy police presence at Fruitville and Honore Friday night after a man walked into the fast food restaurant around 10:15pm with a silver/chrome pistol and demanded money from the employees, later fleeing on foot.

Police established a perimeter and searched, but did not find the suspect.

The video shows the man walk in with his handgun already drawn and a book bag zipped open to have cash placed in. One of the employees opens a drawer and hands over the money. The man then flees.

The entire encounter only took around 40-seconds.
