KNOXVILLE (WATE) - One person attempted to rob a Knoxville grocery store on Saturday morning, according to Knoxville police.

The incident happened around 7:40 a.m. at the Food City on the 1900 block of Western Avenue.

The suspect confronted a Food City worker and acted like he had a weapon. He tried to get her to open the safe but she couldn't because it was on a time lock.

The suspect was able to take some money from the store, but as he was leaving, two Food City managers kept him inside the building.

Police have the suspect in custody.
