Gunman opts not to rob West Side market

MANCHESTER – A gunman tried to rob a West Side market Thursday night but left empty-handed when the clerk told him there was another employee in the store.

The incident happened just after 8 p.m. at Jon O's Market, 600 Front St.

Police said the man pointed a gun at the 37-year-old clerk and demanded three packs of Newport cigarettes and all the cash in the till.

The clerk motioned towards the back and told the robber there was another employee in the store. The robber immediately fled the store, running in a southerly direction.

The gunman is described as a thin white man, about 19 years old, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-6, and weighing 140 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, a black winter hat, black gloves, dark pants and had a yellow bandanna, with red designs on it, covering his face.

Employees believe he was in the store a couple of hours earlier asking about store hours.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 668-8711. Anonymous tips for cash rewards may be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at .
