Woman faces charges in attempted robbery
A Hagerstown woman who police say brandished a knife at a Sheetz Saturday night was charged in connection with an attempted armed robbery early Sunday.
Denise Moore Griffin, 38, of 2 Broadway, Apt. 6, Hagerstown, was charged by Hagerstown City Police early Sunday with one count of attempted armed robbery, one count of attempted robbery, one count of attempted theft, one count of carrying a concealed weapon, one count of first-degree assault and one count of second-degree assault in connection with an attempted robbery of a Sheetz store at 700 Potomac Ave. in Hagerstown, police said in a release.
When Hagerstown City Police officers arrived at the store Saturday night, employees told them that a white woman, wearing a burgundy sweatshirt and blue jeans, entered the store, showed a knife and demanded money from the store's cash register, police said.
Employees said the woman then ran out of the store without taking any money, police said.
