Customer Halts Robbery of East Street Video
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A store patron stopped an unarmed robbery of East Street Video Wednesday night.
Police say at about 8:45 p.m. Ivy Rogers, 32, of Pittsfield allegedly entered the store wearing a mask and multiple layers of clothing. She then slammed the clerk's head into the counter and demanded the money from the register.
After taking the money, she attempted to flee the store but was confronted by a customer. That individual eventually pinned Rogers down until police arrived.
Rogers was arranged in Pittsfield District Court Thursday morning on a single count of unarmed robbery.
