Robber with knife meets his match with a person with a permitted concealed handgun
Assistant Manager Michael Kry said he noticed a six-foot-tall black male with a thin build carefully checking the store's hours on the glass door after he closed up shop on Sunday, Dec. 3 and was filling out paperwork.
Kry said police told him the suspect was probably watching him to see what he was doing.
At about 9:20 p.m. Kry was exiting the store when the suspect attacked him, trying to pin him to the ground in order to steal the night's deposit out of his hand. According to police reports, a brief scuffle ensued and Kry elbowed his apparently unarmed assailant in the face.
The suspect stepped back and both men drew hidden weapons.
Kry, who was not harmed and did not fire his pistol, said the suspect fled on foot in the direction of Raymond. . . .
