A Jackson man is in jail for trying to rob a Wendy's.
It happened just after 11:30 p.m. Thursday at the location on South West Ave.
Police say the man approached the drive-thru window with a knife, grabbed an employee by her arm, and demanded money. The woman was able to pull herself away and give police both a description and the direction in which he ran away.
The man was later arrested at a home on Gettysburg Ave.
