Akron police detectives are reviewing surveillance video of a man’s attempt to rob a Brittain Road gas station clerk early Tuesday morning.
The 31-year-old Circle K clerk told police that the man came to the store’s secured service window about 1:30 a.m., pointed his finger intimating he was armed and demanded cash. She said the man wore what appeared to be a woman’s fishnet stocking over his face.
The clerk told police she walked away from the window and called 911. She said the would-be robber then walked to a white Pontiac Grand Am and drove away.
A police report shows detectives are receiving a CD containing surveillance footage of the robbery attempt. The tape may contain images of the suspect and his vehicle.
