By , Columbian staff writer

A Clark County Sheriff’s Office detective arrested a man suspected of attempted robbery at an Orchards area Jack in the Box on Friday afternoon.

According to a release from the Sheriff’s Office, a man later identified as Mark Grigorovich entered a Jack in the Box around 4 p.m. while wearing a bandana to cover his face and flashed “what appeared to be a firearm.”

Employees believed they were being robbed, the Sheriff’s Office said, though did not give the suspect money and instead ran to the back of the fast-food restaurant.

Shortly after, Grigorovich exited the building and fled the area on a bicycle, the Sheriff’s Office said. Employees contacted their store manager, who arrived in the area and spotted a man, identified as Grigorovich, riding a bicycle northbound away from the scene.

The manager relayed the information to a deputy. A Sheriff’s Office detective located Grigorovich and conducted a high-risk traffic stop, the release stated. Grigorovich was identified, detained and arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery.

Grigorovich was booked into the Clark County Jail and will appear in court on Sept. 5, according to jail records.
