Clerk Nails Would-Be Robber With Hammer
January 24, 2011
ANKENY, Iowa (AP) — The robbery of an Ankeny convenience store has been thwarted by a hammer-wielding clerk.
Police told KCRG-TV that a man wearing overalls and a bandanna attempted to rob a Kum and Go store just before 1 a.m. Sunday.
But the clerk told the station that when the man ordered him to open the cash register, he instead grabbed a hammer and hit the man on the side of the head. The would-be robber fled without any money.
Police say they’re still looking for him.
