Posted at 5:40 AM, Apr 13, 2016
A Carl's Jr. cashier still gets chills following two robberies at Flamingo Road and Eastern Avenue location, including one with a 3-foot sword Wednesday.
 
A robber armed with a sword walked into the restaurant around 3 a.m. and threatened to cut of the heads of the employees there if they did not give him money.
 
He got away with an undisclosed amount. No injuries were reported. Witnesses say he was wearing a trench coat and a black hat.

"I was terrified. I could've lost my life," said cashier Kasey McLaren.
 
McLaren was not at the restaurant in the recent robbery, but she told 13 Action News, the crook recently robbed her.
 
"The same guy robbed me with a gun. I was terrified -- I could've lost my life," McLaren said.
 
McLaren showed 13 Action News surveillance video of the Wednesday morning robbery.
 
"That's crazy. I don't even see that on movies. Just seeing it on camera gives me chills," McLaren said.
 
McLaren suspects the robber sees her and her coworkers as convenient marks.
 
"He did it a second time because he saw it was easy. He didn't get caught. It's just an overwhelming scary feeling nerve-wracking," McLaren said.
 
The suspect never got more than $100 in either robbery. The first time he allegedly took $60 while the second $93.
