An unidentified woman died during the morning of Sept. 28 after she attempted to rob the Champlain Farms store on Main Street in Vergennes this morning.
“A woman walked into the Champlain Farms convenience store and attacked the clerk with a knife,” Vergennes police officer Brent Newton told reporters. “The clerk was able to detain her.”
Newton said the clerk was not injured in the struggle.
The woman died after the struggle, Newton said. Police are now investigating why the woman died.
Vergennes Police Chief George Merkel said he planned on accompanying the body to a local hospital to be on hand for the autopsy later today.
