Clerk thwarts attempted robbery
A would-be robber is thwarted by a Janesville gas station clerk, who simply refused to hand over the cash. Police say a white male in his 20's, about 5-10 and 180 pounds walked into the Citgo station on Parker Street a little before 9:00 p.m. Saturday and demanded money. The suspect never displayed or implied a weapon, and the clerk refused to comply. The man fled the store without any money or merchandise. Police searched the area with a K-9 unit, but were unsuccessful.
