Robbery Attempt at Downtown Erie Convenience Store

Posted: Updated:
A clerk at an Erie convenience store did not let an attempted robber get away with the crime.

The attempt happened at the A-Plus Mini Mart, on 12th and French Streets, at around 1:30 Monday morning.

Police said a man walked into the store with a shirt over his hand and indicated to the clerk that he had a gun.

According to reports, the clerk then took a swipe at the suspect's hand.  After that, the suspect fled the store, empty-handed.

At this time, investigators are reviewing the store's surveillance video.

No one was hurt in the incident, and the search for that suspect continues.

If you have any information, you're asked to call Erie police, at: 870-1120.
