On Thursday afternoon, police said a man jumped over the counter at Wayne’s Country Store at 1020 W. Washington St., pushed the clerk aside and grabbed cash from the register.

The suspect stole the money as the store clerk made change for an item he was going to purchase, police said.

On Tuesday night, a man jumped over the counter at the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant at 330 Dual Highway, pushed the clerk aside and tried to open the cash register, but was unsuccessful..

In each case, the robber was described as wearing a fishing hat and a plaid shirt, police said.

He was wearing camouflage pants in the KFC incident and blue jeans in the Wayne’s Country Store robbery, police said.

After the robbery Thursday, a K-9 track led authorities to an Avalon Avenue residence, where the suspect’s clothing was found in the back yard, police said.

The clerk at Wayne’s sustained minor injuries, but no one was injured in the attempted robbery at KFC, police said.
