LIMA — An armed cashier at Lima business thwarted an armed robbery attempt Tuesday night.
According to a statement released Wednesday by the Lima Police Department, two males entered Hermies Party Shop on St. Johns Road shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday with pistols drawn. They demanded the cashier give them money from the cash register.
Both males were dressed in black Nike sweatsuits and had their faces covered, although one male ran up the aisle toward the cashier and lifted the white handkerchief covering his face. As he approached, he saw that the cashier was armed. The two men then exited the building running northbound. Nothing was taken during the attempted robbery.
