Robbery attempt reported

BRADLEY — The Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office confirmed an attempted robbery at Eddie’s Market in Bradley at approximately 10:30 a.m. Friday.

In a press release, RCSD said a male suspect entered the store demanding money. He held the clerk at knife point, but the clerk yelled for the owner and set off an alarm, according to police.

The man exited the store and was chased by the owner, the press release said. The suspect was picked up by a second suspect across the street, driving in the direction of Crossroads. The owner was unable to get the license plate number. Deputies have since located the vehicle and are questioning the suspects.

The robbery attempt remains under investigation by Cpl. R.L. Bircham and members of the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office Detective Bureau.
