Armed clerk turns tables on would-be robber

A Reidsville area store clerk turned the tables on a would-be robber by pointing a gun at him, the sheriff’s office said.

Saveng Kaaosanga, 46, who works at the Cornerstone Market outside Reidsville, told the Rockingham County Sheriff’s office a man entered the store with his right hand inside his coat as if he had a gun.

He was also keeping his face partially covered by pulling his shirt up and holding it with his left hand.

He demanded the money, but Kaaosanga refused. Instead, Kaaosanga defended himself by pointing a pistol at the suspect, the sheriff’s office said.

The pistol misfired as he proceeded to flee the store.

He was last seeing climbing into a black, older model Ford truck.

The sheriff’s office asks people with information to call 634-3238 to speak with a detective or Crimestoppers for a reward up to $1,000 349-9683.
