Two men wearing hoods and bandannas and carrying a handgun tried to enter the store at 820 S. College Ave. about 12:23 a.m.
“The store, having been robbed a week prior, was keeping the doors locked at night while open. As the store clerk was behind the counter, the two suspects approached on foot and began pulling on the door. The unknown suspects ordered the clerk to open the door, but soon ran off as they were unsuccessful at gaining entry,” Sgt. Gerald J. Bryda said.
Both robbers were described as black and about 25 years old, with thin builds. One was wearing a black sweatshirt with the hood up and a white bandanna over his face, black pants and gloves.
The other, carrying the handgun, was wearing a red sweatshirt with the hood up, a green bandanna over his face and gloves.
