A man needs some lessons in armed robbery, as he blew two consecutive armed robbery attempts space only 30 minutes apart. Of course, he did manage to succeed in one thing: he got away from both.
The still unidentified robber first tried to rob the Subway Restaurant at 1021 High St. in Hamilton, OH, just before 7:30 PM. The robber said, “This is a robbery; give me the money.” He then on the counter and tried to steal the cash register, but the clerk pushed him off of the counter and the man fled on foot.
Thirty minutes later, he attempted a robbery at the Family Dollar Store at 2526 Dixie Highway. This time, he displayed the outline of a gun to the clerk. He then tried to open the register but was unsuccessful, and then fled the scene.
Someone needs some lessons, as obviously he needed to force the cashier to open the cash register, but oh, well. Police are still investigating, and anyone with information concerning the robberies is asked to contact Detective David Collins at (513) 868-5811, extension 1214.
