AX ROBBER SUR
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Va. -

Surveillance video of a man who tried to rob a Washington County convenience store with an axe has been released.

The robber holding an axe and wearing a hooded sweatshirt walked into the Scotchman convenience store on Lee Highway.

Deputies say he demanded money from the clerk, who refused to hand over any cash. The robber then left the store, but used the axe to break the windows in the clerk's car.

The sheriff's office does have a person of interest but no arrests have been made.
