A local convenience store clerk stopped two would-be robbers recently, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. Instead of handing over the store’s money as ordered, the clerk grabbed the large stick carried by one of the two suspects. Surprised, the pair fled the convenience store without taking anything or harming the clerk.
The suspected robbers, both freshmen at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, were arrested after an officer pulled their vehicle over for weaving between lanes on Nevada Road. The convenience store clerk identified them as the men she had chased out of the convenience store. Both men are being held on charges for attempted aggravated robbery and conspiracy, both of which are felonies in Colorado. They have also been banned from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs campus, pending a decision by the university administrators on whether they should be suspended.
