Cleveland police detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect who attempted to rob Denley Market, 4059 Valley Road, on Tuesday.

Around 11:40 a.m. an unidentified man entered the store, walked around for a few moments and then put on a blue mask on before running up to the counter.  Security cameras captured footage of the man pulling a gun on the clerk. The employee slapped the gun away from his face and the suspect responded by trying to punch him.

The suspect ran from the store empty handed.

Anyone with information regarding the crime or the identity of the person in the photograph is asked to contact Detective Janet Murphy at or by calling 216-623-5218.
