STAMFORD - An 18-year-old in Stamford is facing charges in an alleged robbery hoax at a restaurant where he worked.

Dennis Rodas was arrested last night at Cosi on Tresser Boulevard.

Police say he texted management and told them a man came into the store, put a  gun to his head and demanded the combination to the safe.

Officers say they responded to the restaurant, but saw nothing out of the ordinary.

Rodas has been charged with breach of peace, reckless endangerment and possession of marijuana.
