tongsAn Austin man was arrested after unsuccessfully attempting to rob a Whataburger with a pair of tongs, according to officers.

After reviewing surveillance video, authorities say 44-year-old David Garcia-Gonzalez, who had difficulty maintaining balance while walking, approached a Whataburger at 2305 Burleson Road.

The suspect approached her from behind and started jabbing her with the tongs while repeatedly demanding money.

Garcia-Gonzalez was eventually confronted by another employee, who ordered him to leave the restaurant.

The suspect fled the scene but was later detained by officers at a car wash just east of the Whataburger.

Garcia-Gonzalez now faces charges for robbery by threat, a second-degree felony.
