The clerk at a local convenience store thwarted a robbery attempt when he refused to hand over cash to a woman early Thursday.
Lawrence police reported that the woman at about 12:20 a.m. walked into Total Petroleum, 501 W. Ninth, and told the clerk she was there to rob the business.
She demanded cash and said she was armed, but the clerk told her he wouldn't give her anything unless she showed him the alleged weapon.
The woman left the business on foot.
There were no injuries.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 843-TIPS.
