By , Columbian staff writer

Two armed men tried to rob the Gas Towne Mini Mart in Orchards on Monday night and pepper-sprayed a clerk who refused to hand over any money, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

Vancouver police officers responded at 11:23 p.m. to the market at 10809 N.E. Fourth Plain Blvd., where two men displayed a handgun and demanded cash. The men ran from the store after pepper-spraying the clerk, according to department spokeswoman Kim Kapp.

Officers did not locate the suspects, Kapp said. Police are continuing to investigate.
