Man Leaves Store Empty-Handed Following Alleged Robbery Attempt
A man is being charged with trying to rob a UDF gas station in northeast Columbus.
Authorities said Johnny Lee Hazelwood threatened the clerk with a knife at a UDF on Karl Road around 9:20 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7.
Hazelwood, 34, allegedly jumped on the counter when the clerk did not hand over any money.
The clerk retreated to a back room at the store and a co-worker called police.
That's when investigators say Hazelwood left the store empty-handed.
Hazelwood was arrested around 2 a.m. on Sunday. He faces aggravated robbery charges.
