Attempted Robbery

by Christa Lollis

Two women were sitting in their cars yesterday at the Lufkin mall when a robber tried to take their money.   Authorities say a man wearing a ski mask approached the women and demanding their money. The women say he never showed them a gun but he had something in his hand they believed was one. The women were parked outside of the movie theater entrance. The women started screaming and honking their horn, scaring the would be robber off. They say he got in a small black car and drove away.
