Armed clerk thwarts robber

A masked man’s robbery attempt was thwarted Tuesday night when his intended victim pulled a gun on him, police said.

At 9:23 p.m., a man armed with a gun and wearing a mask entered Winston’s Mini-Mart in the 2500 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and demanded money from the clerk at gunpoint, according to police.

Police said the clerk, who was behind a bulletproof glass window, refused the man’s demands and pulled out a gun of his own.

Police said the robber ran from the store in an unknown direction.

Nothing was taken, and no one was injured.
