Police are investigating an apparent attempted robbery of a Middletown store this morning.

Several men in a vehicle stolen from Englewood pulled in and backed up several times about 9:55 a.m. in the parking lot of AT&T on Towne Boulevard, according to Middletown Maj. David Birk.

“Four of them got out and pulled their shirts over their heads and started toward the store,” Birk said. That is when the customers in the store and employees ran to the back of the store.

Witnesses said three men got out of a Chevy Malibu with covered faces and blue surgical gloves. They entered the store, then ran out, according to the police report.

The suspect vehicle drove toward Hendrickson Road. Police are working with area police agencies to find the vehicle and determine if the men are suspects in a similar robbery in Beavercreek this week.
