Man arrested after Cook Out attempted armed robbery

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

A man was arrested on Monday for the attempted armed robbery of a north Charlotte business.

Decarlos Sifford, 20, was arrested on Brenard Avenue in Kannapolis and charged with attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon.

The incident happened on August 14 at the Cook Out restaurant on the 4300 block of Sunset Road.
