ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) -

Elyria Police say a man who was once employed at Burger King located at 827 Cleveland Street returned to the business in an attempted robbery.

Authorities say the incident happened on Tuesday, September 9 around 1 a.m.

Jeremy Taylor, 35, was arrested for using a knife to scare a former co-worker into handing over money at the restaurant.

Charlotte Keenan, the restaurant manager, says while in her office counting the money made that day, she observed an employee, Jarvis Perkins, re-entering the restaurant with hands in the air.  Perkins had encountered Taylor while taking the trash out the back door.

When Taylor noticed the money in Keenan's hands, he ordered her to drop the cash.

At that time an altercation occurred between Perkins and Taylor, with Perkins managing to get the knife out of Taylor's possession. 

Perkins got the upper hand and struck Taylor in the head, and forced him out the back door, down to the ground.

When officers arrived, they found Taylor bleeding profusely from his head,still lying on the ground, just outside the back door.

Keenan told detectives that Taylor's wife or girlfriend, Amy Brady, was still employed there.

Authorities are hoping to obtain surveillance video as evidence against Taylor.

Officers recovered the knife that was said to be used during the incident.  It has been confirmed that the knife did not match any of the knives used by staff.
