NIAGARA FALLS - Two men attempted to hold up a 7-Eleven on Buffalo Avenue Thursday, but were thwarted when a clerk activated an alarm in the store.
The clerk told police that the men came into the store just before midnight and demanded, "Give me all the money and there won't be a problem." One male had his hand inside his jacket, as if he had some type of weapon, but did not display a weapon, according to the clerk.
The clerk refused to hand over any cash and hit the alarm, causing both suspect to flee.
A witness told police she saw the suspects running down the alley and then get into a vehicle, possibly a Dodge Intrepid.
