Youngster tries to rob gas station

FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) - Franklin police say a 10-year-old girl tried to rob a gas station but was rebuffed by a clerk.

Officers said the girl demanded the clerk give her money from the register shortly before midnight Monday.

The child then threw a rock at the clerk, hitting him in the chest. She left after the clerk told her to leave.

Police caught her later.

Officers filed attempted aggravated robbery petitions against the girl.
