WDBR in Springfield reports 21 year old Danien D. Taylor of Florissant, MO, was arrested and taken to the Montgomery County Jail.
Taylor reportedly initially entered the restaurant, displayed a handgun and demanded money from an employee. A manager shouted at Taylor to leave and he did.
Police began searching the area for a man described by witnesses, several of whom reported seeing the suspect several blocks away on foot.
