NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police are searching for a man who attempted to rob a grocery store cashier at gunpoint in south Nashville Thursday night.
It happened at the Kroger at Nashboro Village around 11 p.m.
A man walked into the store wearing a yellow bandana over his face and a University of North Carolina hooded sweatshirt.
He approached the cashier at the U-Scan, pointed a gun at her and ordered her to open the register.
A customer saw the man attempt to rob the woman and began running through the aisles, telling customers to go to the back of the store.
The clerk was explaining she can’t open the register without a key when the man grabs her and she pushes him away.
The man eventually left the store empty-handed.
A half-hour before the attempted robbery, another man got into an altercation with the same cashier.
That man asked her for change for a $10 bill and then began touching her around her waist.
Police are trying to determine if the two incidents related or if the men were working together. They suspect the first man was attempting to get a key to the register.
If you have any information regarding this incident, you are urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
