Man accused of trying to rob Ann Arbor Denny's with steak knife

A man is under arrest accused of trying to rob a Denny’s restaurant with a steak knife.
Police say 28-year-old James Adkins walked up to an employee at the Denny's in Ann Arbor with the knife and allegedly told the cashier to "be quiet" and demanding  money from the register.

The cashier simply walked away and the wannabe robber took off  without any money.

On Tuesday, several police agencies worked together to arrest him in Superior Township.

Police want to talk to anyone who was in the Denny's at the time of the attempted robbery. Call the Ann Arbor PD at (734) 794-6927.
