Checkers on West Broadway robbed by gunman


Checkers, a fast-food place located on West Broadway, at the end of Union Avenue, was robbed early Sunday morning, according to Paterson Police.

The suspect, a man dressed in gray clothing and wearing something that hid his face, walked into the establishment at around 4am Sunday, pointed a gun at the employees, and made away with $75 after going through the restaurant’s cash registrars.

Police are investigating the incident.
