A store clerk wrestles a would-be robber to the ground, before he runs away.
According to Captain Mike Sweeney, Salina Police are looking for a white male in his 20’s who attempted to rob the Rod’s Convenience Store, 1401 S. Santa Fe on Sunday night.
Police say the man walked into the store Sunday at 9:45pm wearing a black ski mask and a long haired wig and told the clerk he wanted the money, then motioned as if he had a gun.
The clerk went into action – ripping the suspect’s wig off.
A patron came in and called 911. During the struggle, the suspect bit the clerk on the finger and then fled on foot.
Police say they are looking for a white male in his mid 20’s who is 6-foot tall with a stocky build.
The clerk did not require medical treatment.
