According to police, the robber entered the store and asked for cash. He spoke with an accent and was armed with a small, black handgun during the course of the attempted robbery.
The clerk thwarted the robbery and allegedly chased the assailant out of the store. An unidentified witness last observed the suspect running toward a nearby address, which officers are currently checking. There is no surveillance video at this particular store, so no photos are available.
