Apparently bewildered by the disappearance of the clerk, and unable to open the cash register, the robbery suspect fled.
Police were called at about 2:15 Saturday afternoon and quickly responded to the scene. A house to house, business by business search was conducted with officers looking for an older man, age 55-60, 6' 1" and "about the size of Bennie (Hudgens)," wearing a red flannel shirt and tan pants.
The clerk told police the man had entered the store with what appeared to be a nylon stocking over his head.
Police are still looking for the felon, who apparently left without taking anything but his own ineptitude and disappointment from the store.
