Police said a man's attempt to rob a convenience store was thwarted when a clerk demanded to see his gun. Authorities said a flustered Adam Alsarabi fled from the White Hen Pantry in Haverhill and later was caught in the woods by police. No gun was found on him. Police reported said the 22-year-old entered the store about 12:45 a.m. Friday, and told the clerk to give him money and that he had a gun.
The clerk said he could have the money, but had to show the gun first.
Police said Alsarabi then ran out of the store and into the woods.
He pleaded not guilty Friday in Haverhill District Court to trespassing, resisting arrest and attempting to commit a crime.
It's unclear if Alsarabi has hired an attorney.
