Disappointed he couldn't buy beer overnight, a man pulled out a knife and decided to rob the store.
The incident happened just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday at the Certified Gas Station, 2501 Springfield-Jamestown Road.
The robber walked in and asked to buy beer, but the coolers were closed at 1 a.m., per Ohio law, and the clerk would not break the law, according to the Springfield police report.
Police said the man then pulled out a 5-inch knife, held it to the clerk's midsection and cleaned out the cash register.
The robber was described as white, in his 30s or 40s, 5-feet-8 with blond hair and blue eyes.
He was wearing a black zip-up jacket, black shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.
The robber fled in a dark-colored Chevrolet Blazer and got away with an undetermined amount of cash, according to the report.
