San Antonio police arrested a robbery suspect after a fast-food restaurant worker laughed at him and said get a job -- if he needed money. The failed holdup happened Tuesday night at a McDonald's. Police say the suspect approached a cashier and demanded money. Police say the cashier laughed and apparently didn't realize the man was trying to hold up the place.

The suspect then allegedly pulled out a box cutter and demanded the cashier's wallet. The employee complied, but had no money in his billfold.

The suspect fled, but was caught by police who responded to the robbery call. San Antonio police say the suspect is expected to be charged with aggravated robbery.
