LUFKIN, Texas — The Lufkin Police Department is investigating after a man allegedly threatened and robbed a Whataburger early Monday morning.

According to Lufkin PD, the incident happened at the Whataburger on North Timberland Drive around 3 a.m.

The subject showed a pistol in his waistband and followed the employee behind the counter. He then got money from both registers before fleeing on foot toward the rear of the building.
