Eclipsing his attempt

A male intent on robbing a Newbold store left the location minus any goods.

The at-large figure entered the Sunshine Grocery Store, 1436 Snyder Ave., at 6:36 p.m. June 23 and placed a demand note on the counter. A would-be customer entered the store, however, startling the individual, who picked up the note and quickly walked out of the store, with the complainant reporting that he headed east on Snyder Avenue toward Broad Street. The business reported no injuries and nothing taken.
