(Richmond, IN)--There was an attempted armed robbery of sorts Thursday morning at a Richmond Village Pantry. It happened at around 5 o’clock Thursday morning at the VP at 5th and West Main. A man was milling around in the store for a while and then walked up to the clerk. The clerk saw the man take his hand out of his pocket and stick it under his shirt as though he had a gun. He then demanded cash. The clerk told the man she saw him stick his hand under his shirt and knew that it wasn’t a gun. He then fled the scene without any cash.
