A Florida man was arrested and charged after he allegedly tried and failed to rob a bank and a fast-food restaurant.
On August 5, an employee at a Wendy’s restaurant in Melbourne was at the customer service counter when she was approached by a man. Instead of placing an order, he allegedly told her to give him the money from the cash register. The employee believed he had a firearm, and she froze in fear. When one of her coworkers came to see what was happening, the man quickly left the restaurant.
Later that day in the City of Palm Bay, a bank was visited by a man wearing a face mask and a hat. He allegedly went to the counter and attempted to rob money from the financial institution. Again, he fled before he was able to obtain any money.
