Rite Aid employees escaped robbery Thursday evening after a man entered the 2300 Wynnton Road store and flashed a pistol, according to a Columbus Police report.
While it is unclear why the alleged would-be robber was unsuccessful, employees told police that he flashed a silver pistol from his waistband after arriving at about 8:50 p.m.
No injuries were reported.
He was described as a 18 to 21-year-old black man with a light to medium complexion. The suspect was also allegedly wearing a white shirt, a black bomber jack, blue jeans and a white hat.
