A quick-thinking clerk thwarted what police say was an attempted armed robbery earlier this week at Rocky’s Quick Stop at 1913 Elberta Road.
Just before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, the employee saw two masked men, at least one of them armed, headed for the store, according to Jennifer Parson, public information officer for Warner Robins police.
The employee activated a magnetic door lock, which prevented the men from getting inside the store, Parson said in an email Friday. The men then fled.
One of the men was about 5 feet 7 inches tall to 5 feet 9 inches tall. He weighs between 200 to 230 pounds, Parson said. The second man was about the same height and weighs between 180 to 200 pounds.
