Deputy's red-handed catch

Deputy's red-handed catch

A man trying to rob a Henrietta convenience store at knifepoint was interrupted by a Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy this afternoon.

The sheriff's office said Sergeant Robert Murphy happened to be waiting at a red light across from the Express Mart on East Henrietta Road when 911 calls began coming in that a man was trying to hold the place up. Sergeant Murphy immediately pulled into the parking lot, got a description of the suspect from witnesses outside, then went in and found the suspect still in the store with the knife in his hand.

The suspect put the knife down when he saw the deputy, and was arrested.
