At the end of another busy day at the local K-Mart, workers were busy wrapping up their closing procedures when two men who had been hiding in the store after the store closed rushed out yelling and pointing guns.
Surveillance photos taken at the store, located at 301 College Square in Newark, showed the attempted robbery in progress.
Police said the two suspects hid in the store Sunday until it closed.
As the manager deposited the night’s receipts into a safe, they pulled out a gun and demanded the money. The manager screamed, and another employee came running.
Police said the two suspects ran away without taking anything.
Anyone who recognizes the suspects or has any information is asked to call Detective Maiura at 302-366-7110, ext. 152. Information can always be reported anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
