Morgan-- A Morgan store clerk helps police catch two men who tried to rob him.

Police say 22-year-old Antwan Bernard Gainer and 22-year-old Melvin Eugene Rathel rushed a store employee as he was locking the Quick Buys store on Highway 37 in Morgan just after midnight. Both men were armed, one with a butcher knife, the other with a shotgun. They forced the store clerk back inside the store, but an alarm sounded and the men fled.

The clerk recognized the two men as regular patrons of his store by their voices and mannerisms. The police tracked the two down at a friend's house a few hours later.
