Attendant sits down, ducks a holdup

October 06, 1994

A man who tried to rob a Mobil gas station yesterday morning was foiled when the attendant locked the outside cash drawer and sat on the floor until he left, county police said.

The man walked up to the outside service window of the station in the 7900 block of Crain Highway shortly after 12:30 a.m. Holding his hand in his shirt as though he had a gun, the man ordered the attendant to put money through the cash window, police said.

But the robber left without any money after the attendant locked the cash drawer and sat on the floor, police said.
