A Dunkin’ Donuts cashier thwarted a would-be armed robbery at the donut shop in Bristol by simply saying no and walking away, according to West Haven police.
A woman approached the cashier at 855 Farmington Ave. at 9:16 p.m. on Sunday, showed a knife and demanded money, according to police.
But the cashier said, “No” and walked away. The perpetrator then fled.
She is believed to be 30 to 40 years, old with dark hair, around 5-feet-6 and between 120 and 130 pounds.
She was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt and a winter cap.
Anyone with information about the attempted robbery should call Officer Wethered at 860-584-3011.
