Quick-thinking restaurant workers foil gunman’s robbery plans

The gunman walked into a Wendy’s restaurant waving a weapon and demanding money but he failed to get any when employees darted into a back office and locked the door, Hollywood police said.

Now, detectives are hoping someone will recognize and report the failed armed robber seen in a surveillance video.

The attempted holdup happened about 1 a.m., Feb. 19, in the Wendy’s at 3535 Hollywood Blvd., police said.

Security cameras were rolling when the robber entered the restaurant and immediately pointed a gun at a startled customer who fell backward onto the floor and stayed there.
