LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A would-be robber pepper-sprayed a money courier, who then clobbered him with his gun and held him at gunpoint until officers arrived, police said.
The Loomis Fargo and Co. courier, Tyler Kerby, 23, "is more of a hero than anything," Logan Police Capt. Eric Collins said.
Jason C. Wiberg, 35, Hyrum, was arrested Tuesday afternoon at the Wells Fargo bank branch where the courier had been trying to deliver cash.
Another courier waiting outside in the armored car wasn't aware of the attack, police said.
Police transported Wiberg to Logan Regional Hospital, where he was treated for the wound to his head.
Kerby was treated at the scene, and was not hospitalized.
