SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine — A local convenience store was robbed for the second time in less than a week early Friday morning when a man armed with a knife showed up and demanded money, according to police.

The Portland Press Herald reports Adams demanded cash from the register and a safe, and fled empty-handed after a struggle with a clerk.

Adams is being held at the Cumberland County Jail on $100,000 cash bail. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted of the Class A crime of robbery.
