Wichita clerk’s response sends robber away empty-handed

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita store clerk’s observation to a would-be robber sent the man running out of the business empty-handed.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1BEdN3u ) reports a man carrying a gun and with a scarf over his face walked into the store around 10:15 p.m. Thursday.

Police Lt. James Espinoza says the man demanded money, telling the clerk he had six children and needed the funds for them.

Espinoza says the clerk responded by telling the man he shouldn’t have had so many kids, and the suspect ran out of the store.
