Bicycle News of a different sort from the Nevada Appeal:
A man who attempted to rob the Carson Coffee kiosk on North Carson Streets this morning about 7:30 a.m., fired two rounds at the elderly clerk — missing both times — then fled southbound on a bicycle on Carson Street.
According to Sheriff’s Department records, the man is described as a white male, 6-feet-tall, 170 pounds with blue eyes. His head was covered by a clear-type of mask. He was wearing a tan checkered jacket and riding a red BMX-type bicycle with black handle bars.
The man walked into the kiosk in the Frontier Shopping Center at 1825 N. Carson Street and confronted the clerk with a handgun.
The clerk pushed the gun away and the robber fired two shots. One of the bullets grazed the victim’s lower extremities. The robber then fled. The clerk refused medical attention.
The man is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him should immediately call 911, said Detective Daniel Gonzales.
