LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville man robbed his own co-worker.

It happened shortly after 7 a.m. Monday.

Police say 19-year-old Tyler Burns walked into the Sun Tan City on Bardstown Road, near Dundee Road, wearing a mask.

He then allegedly forced a female employee to open a safe and give him money. Then he ran away.

But police say that mask didn't exactly hide his identity. The employee recognized Burns as one of her own co-workers.

Police arrested him Monday afternoon and charged him with robbery.
