A bullet proof barrier and metal door securing the cashier's area protected a clerk from an attempted robbery at about 4:38 a.m. Wednesday at Jumbo Food store, 4116 Napier Ave.

Two armed men - one with a shotgun, the other with a handgun - entered the store and realized they couldn't get to the cashier because of the enclosure, according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

No money was taken and no one was injured. The men fled towards Ayers Road.
