There was an attempted robbery at Cato’s clothing store next to K-Mart on Wednesday. One of the employees of the store told police that a white male between 50 and 60-years old entered the establishment and told the clerk that he was armed with a gun. The man asked the worker to empty the cash register. The store employee told the culprit that she could not open the register without ringing up a sale. The man then told the clerk that she was lucky that he did not shoot her. The man fled the scene empty handed and the employee quickly called the police. Officers were unable to locate the subject when they arrived. No arrest could be made.
