Akron police are looking into an attempted robbery at a convenience store. It happened around 1:30 A.M. at Circle K on Brittain Road near Chapel Hill Mall. A clerk told police a man wearing a fishnet stocking over his head approached the window and used his fingers to indicate that he had a gun, but the clerk turned around and called police. Only a vague description is available, but witnesses say he took off in a white Pontiac Grand Am.
Also, police are looking for the guy who demanded money from a woman near Iroquois and Laffer Avenues. The victim, 43, says she put up a fight, rather than giving up her purse. Then the man allegedly tried to cut the woman's neck.
