The Herald, New Britain, CT, 9/1/89

Friday, December 1, 1989

A man apparently intent on robbing the same Southington, Conn., convenience store twice in one week entered the store wearing a bag over his head. He approached the manager, whose back was turned, and pulled a knife. When the knife-wielding man held the knife over the manager's head in a threatening manner, the manager responded by pulling a handgun and firing at his adversary. The would-be robber, suspected by police in a number of other hold-ups, fled the store empty-handed.
