SPRINGDALE, Ohio -- Two armed men with guns tried to rob a Steak 'n Shake early Wednesday morning, but didn't make it out with any money, police said. 

According to Springdale police, the masked men both had handguns and demanded money when they entered the restaurant on Princeton Pike.

Some employees said they took cover in a back room and called 911.


When authorities arrived, the men had fled, but a K-9 unit tracked down and helped apprehend one of the suspects, James Arthur Brown Jr. Brown was treated for a dog bite at the hospital before being taken to Hamilton County Jail.

The other suspect has not been apprehended.

Anyone with information on the robbery can call Springdale police at 513-346-5760.
