Resident's call helps Danville police make arrest in armed robbery at McDonald's

DANVILLE — Help from a neighbor enabled police to make an arrest shortly after an armed robbery Wednesday night at the McDonald's on Bowman Avenue.

Officers were called to the restaurant in the 100 block of Bowman shortly after midnight Wednesday, where employees and witnesses told them a man came in, approached the counter and demanded money from the register. One employee said the man had something shiny in his hand that he was pointing at her. He took an undisclosed amount of cash and ran away. No one was injured.

While police were investigating, a resident called 911 and reported seeing a man running from the area and hiding when he saw police. With that information and descriptions from witnesses, police said they located Cameron C. Creamer, 26, of Danville near the intersection of Bowman Avenue and Harvey Street. They said a search of Creamer turned up cash and a silver-colored knife.

He was arrested on preliminary charges of armed robbery and resisting and obstructing justice.
