On Thursday, January 13, 2021, at approximately 3:40 pm, officers were dispatched to Travel Mart, 725 North Highway 75 North, Moorhead, for a report of an attempted aggravated robbery. The adult male victim stated he was in his vehicle at the gas pumps when the suspect entered his passenger side, displayed a handgun, and ordered the victim out of the vehicle. The victim was able to leave and enter the store, where he and the clerk were able to lock the entrance.
