Woodland clerk takes gun away from would-be robber

A Woodland mini-mart clerk wrestled a gun away from a would-be robber Tuesday and chased him out the store, according to police.

About 2:30 a.m., a masked man armed with an assault rifle entered the AM/PM store on the 300 block of West Main Street and demanded cash, Woodland police said in a prepared statement.

As the gunman handed the clerk a bag for the money, the clerk grabbed the barrel of the rifle and yanked it from the robber’s grip. The clerk then pointed the loaded rifle at the suspect who was last seen running eastbound on West Lincoln Avenue with a second unidentified male subject.
