"When he walked in, he asked `em what he could help 'em with. And then that's when one pulled out the knife, and requested for the money," said Meghan O'Donoghue, employee of the gas station. "One was very aggressive, and was attempting to get to the registers, and she did not accomplish anything."
The suspects were not successful in their robbery -- and did not get any money or property. Nobody was hurt in the robbery attempt.
