Paducah police say a woman attempted to rob the Superway on Hinkleville Road early Saturday.
Police say the woman walked into the store carrying a large dark-colored bag. She put a 12-pack of beer into the bag, walked to the counter and asked for a carton of cigarettes. When the clerk asked for identification, the woman pulled a silver handgun and demanded money. The clerk then activated an alarm and chased the woman out of the store.
The woman drove away in a 1990s model navy blue Ford pick-up truck with a silver tool box in the bed. The woman was wearing tight dark pants with either tears or red material on them, work boots and a large black hoodie with red lettering.
Call Paducah Police at (270) 444-8550 or Crime Stoppers at 443-TELL if you know any information about the robbery.
