AKRON -- It was about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday when police were called to an attempted robbery at Grandpa's Sports Cards at 2161 East Market Street.
The clerk said the man, later identified as Michael Maynard, 20, entered the store and looked at several collector cards. Maynard then pulled out a knife and demanded the cards for free.
The clerk said no and Maynard ran out of the store.
He got onto a bus but was stopped several minutes later and taken into custody without incident. The knife used in the robbery was recovered on the bus.
Police say Maynard has no permanent address. He is now in the Summit County Jail charged with aggravated robbery.
