FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Minnesota man whose attempt to rob a North Dakota fast food restaurant was thwarted by employees and hot grease has pleaded guilty to a felony robbery charge.

The Forum newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/GU2BTL) that a pre-sentence investigation and psychological evaluation was ordered for 30-year-old Andrew Salus of Duluth, Minn.

Authorities say Salus tried to rob a Fargo McDonald's last November, striking an employee several times in the head with a handgun. Salus was burned by cooking grease or oil in a struggle with two employees that ended when officers arrived. Salus was treated at a hospital for cuts and burns.
