MOUNT PLEASANT — Two men in Halloween masks tried to rob a restaurant employee late Sunday as he tried to make the night deposit at the bank on Two Island Court.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken employee told police that he was in his car about 10:35 p.m. at Regions Bank when the men approached him, but he stepped on the gas and drove off, a police report states. It said he stopped at a nearby fire station, where police met him and escorted him back to the bank to make the deposit.
