n Monday around 7:30 P.M., a lone woman walked into Corky's Liquor Bin in the 45000 block of Yale Rd. and demanded cash saying she had a gun in her pocket.


A customer who was in the store at the time, wrestled with her, attempting to make an arrest, however she managed to get out the door without any money or store product.


According to the customer, she had a heavy object in her pocket.


She was last seen fleeing on foot toward the Safeway. Police moved in quickly but failed to located the woman who may have made good her escape in a vehicle. There was too much foot traffic for a police dog to be used so one wasn't brought in.
