A woman threatened to detonate a bomb while robbing a downtown Phoenix restaurant this week. 

Phoenix police report that on Monday night, 20-year-old Rebekah Dominique Santa Cruz entered a Five Guys restaurant near Central Avenue and Jefferson Street. 

When inside, Santa Cruz reportedly gave a note to an employee saying, "Give me all the cash or I ignite the bomb." 

When the employees hit the silent alarm, Santa Cruz ran from the business. 

Employees flagged down an officer in the area and pointed out Santa Cruz. 

She was arrested and charged with attempted robbery.
