HANCOCK - A man who police say was covered in blood Thursday night when he tried to rob the Sheetz convenience store at 192 W. Main St. in Hancock faces several charges in the incident.
Daniel Nathan Robertson, 32, of 126 N. Pennsylvania Ave. in Hancock, was charged Friday with second-degree assault, robbery and other crimes.
A man later identified as Robertson allegedly went into the Sheetz at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, jumped over the counter, took a pack of cigarettes from the shelf and started yelling and cursing, Hancock Police Chief T.J. Buskirk said.
The man also tried to get into the store's cash register, Buskirk alleged.
Store employees called 911 after the man threatened some employees, Buskirk said.
A Hancock police officer was close to the store, and he and a Maryland State Police trooper responded to the robbery in progress call, Buskirk said.
