Guilford Police say a would-be robbery suspect got more than he bargained for Monday night at the Sunshine Daydream store on Boston Post Road.
A store employee grabbed a baseball bat and chased the suspect from the store after the would-be robber jumped the counter and tried to open the cash register, said police.
Police say the employee chased the suspect back to a waiting vehicle, which fled at a high rate of speed. The vehicle is described as an older reddish brown car, possibly a Cadillac, with slit-type rear lights and a dent on the back. It was last seen heading toward Branford on Boston Post Road.
No one was hut and no money was taken during the incident.
Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact Guilford Police at 203-453-8060.
