WEST VALLEY CITY — A fast-food restaurant manager is recovering after a violent armed robbery.
West Valley City police said just before 11:30 p.m. Thursday a man followed the manager into a Taco Bell-KFC at 2450 S. Redwood Rd.
The man then pulled out a handgun and demanded the manager give him money from the safe. As the manager was opening the safe, the robber pistol-whipped him, police said.
The manager received a head injury but he refused medical attention.
The robber fled with the money. A detailed description of him was not immediately available.
Police said it's very rare for a robber to suddenly turn violent when everyone is being cooperative.
