Ohio Arby's manager fired after attempted robbery

CINCINNATI (AP) — An assistant manager at an Arby’s in southwestern Ohio was fired after an attempted armed robbery at the fast-food restaurant because management says she had repeatedly violated company policy to never be alone after hours.

Police said today that Mary Archer had sent the last employee home after midnight Friday when a man armed with a knife came into the Arby’s in Fairborn.

Fairborn police Sgt. Paul Hicks says Archer told officers that when the man demanded money, she pushed him and jumped out of the drive-thru window while screaming.

The man fled and hasn’t been found. Archer wasn’t hurt.

A statement from Arby’s Restaurant Group says Archer was fired for repeatedly violating the after-hours policy, and considers the safety of their employees and guests “to be of utmost importance.”
