A WOULD-be armed robber left a Rawmarsh shop empty-handed after a customer intervened.
Police were called to the McColls store in Kilnhurst Road at 5.37pm yesterday (Wednesday) following reports of a robbery, a police spokeswoman said.
"It is believed a man entered the store brandishing a knife and threatened a customer, while demanding money from the cashier," she said.
"Another customer intervened and the man ran away empty-handed.
"Enquiries are still ongoing to identify the man and anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting incident number 667 of November 27."
