LEXINGTON, Ky., July 1 (UPI) — A Kentucky man attempted to rob a local Chuck E. Cheese while participating in a job interview on Wednesday.
Police Lt. Andrew Daughtery told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the manager of the Chuck E. Cheese said the man came into the Lexington location to get a job application at 2 p.m. and returned at 4 p.m. for an interview. Daughtery said the man announced that he wanted to rob the restaurant and implied that he had a firearm.
The manager reportedly told the man that he did not have access to the safe and advised the would-be robber to leave the premises.
According to WTVQ, police said the man apologized to Chuck E. Cheese employees and began to cry.
Police continued their search for the unidentified man and hoped to track him down with the information provided in his interview if it was truthful.
