Third robbery in two months hits Metro Mart

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- Pasco police say early this morning a man tried to rob the Metro Mart on Lewis St.

Police say the same man 32-year-old Oscar Gonzales-Gomez tried to rob the same place over the weekend but was spooked when the clerk called 9-1-1.

In this morning's robbery attempt, the suspect pulled out a knife, but the clerk ran out of the store and called police.

Officers arrested Gonzales-Gomez and booked him on two counts of armed robbery.

The Metro Mart management says they are planning to make changes to keep their employees safe.
