The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office said a man walked into Dave’s Grocery on U.S. 50 in Marathon at about 9 p.m. and pulled out a gun, demanding money. The store’s owner, Narendra “Goppi” Patel, said he was preparing to close and was holding a six-pack of beer when the man came in. Patel said he told deputies he picked up one of the beer cans and threw it at the robber, who ducked, losing his baseball hat. The man fled the store with Patel in pursuit, deputies said. Passers-by said the man ran behind a nearby home and disappeared.
