Attempt made

to rob Methuen CVS

METHUEN — A man attempted to rob the CVS on Swan Street Saturday morning, but ran off without taking anything.

The man walked into the CVS at about 7 a.m. Saturday, walked up to the register and demanded money from the clerk, who believed the man may have had a weapon concealed under his shirt.

The clerk jumped away from the register, and the man left without any money. Police believe he fled in a gray pickup truck. He was described as a white male, in his mid- to late-20s, unshaven, about five feet three inches, 140 pounds, wearing a white hoodie, a knit cap, running pants with a light stripe and black sneakers.
