Tanya Calvin was just trying to do her job yesterday, serving breakfast out of the Burger King takeout window at 666 W. Broward Blvd. A guy pulled up, she took his money, and then 31-year-old Edwin Walker came jumping in through the window like a cat burglar with a balance problem.
"I cashed him out, and all I see is a guy coming through the window," Calvin said. She grabbed him and kept him from going back out the window with the cash until another employee could hold Walker down.
The whole thing happened about 6:30 Monday morning; police say Walker jumped off the customer's hood when he saw Calvin open the window. Walker has been charged with strong-arm robbery, but if anyone has any more information, Fort Lauderdale Police ask that they call Det. Allen Diamond at 954-828-5539.
