A convenience store clerk in western South Dakota used a stick to scare away a man trying to rob the store.
A man entered the convenience store in Belle Fourche early Saturday and demanded that the clerk put money into a bag. Police say the man fled when the clerk refused to hand over any money and then threatened the would-be robber with a stick.
Police Chief Rob Hansen said authorities were still looking for the suspect later Saturday.
