Deputies Investigating Attempted Armed Robbery

LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) – Lowndes County sheriff’s deputies are looking for the man they say tried to rob a local convenience store.

It happened at the Sprint Mart on Airbase Hill around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Deputies told WCBI a man wearing a skull mask walked into the store, demanding the clerk to open the cash register.

He refused. Then investigators say the suspect swung a knife at the clerk while trying to open the drawer.

The suspect eventually fled on foot, and didn’t get away with anything.

The clerk suffered minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lowndes County sheriff’s department.
