96-year-old shopkeeper thwarts robbery


MARSHFIELD, Wis (WSAU)   A 96-year-old store clerk in Marshfield refused to open the cash register for a would-be robber. The suspect flashed a knife, but eventually ran out of the store empty-handed when he noticed a security camera behind the counter.

The clerk, Margaret Wolf of Wolf's Grocery Store, told the robber "you can have all the tootsie rolls you want, but I'm not opening the register". She's owner the store for 50 years, and said she wouldn't give in because the money belonged to her.

Marshfield police are investigating. They don't have a good description of the robber - he was wearing a mask at the time. Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 877-325-7867.
