'Scream'-style bandit robs S.L. restaurant

A man wearing a costume from the movie "Scream" robbed a Salt Lake restaurant Thursday.

About 10:45 a.m. a man wearing a mask, a blue hoodie and black pants went into Arby's near 1700 S. Redwood Road.

"I thought it was an employee playing a joke," said Debi Jensen, who was eating lunch. "He was so casual about it, he let the guy next to him order."

Instead of lunch, however, the man demanded money. The counter attendant, a woman in her 60s, was injured after the man hit her apparently because she didn't move quickly enough, said Salt Lake police detective Dwayne Baird.
