6a00d8341c630a53ef014e5fa2bf49970c-800wi A man suspected of attempting to rob a Jack in the Box in San Diego at gunpoint was arrested the next day when he returned to the restaurant, apparently to get a burger and fries, police said.

Police were at the restaurant in the Hillcrest neighborhood Thursday for a follow-up investigation when the manager noticed that the would-be robber from Wednesday was standing in line, police said.

Police arrested Shawn Dustin Page, 30, without incident, or fast food.

He had allegedly tried to rob the restaurant but fled after the clerk was unable to open the register. He is also suspected of robbing the same Wells Fargo Bank branch twice.
