Two would-be robbers reversed course when their intended victim pulled out his own gun, Akron police said. The man, 23, told police he had just parked his car in a lot in the 800 block of West Market Street about 11:30 p.m.

Saturday when two men in a nearby car donned masks and approached him. One of the would-be robbers opened the passenger-side door and pointed a gun at the man, police said. The victim, who has a concealed-carry permit, pulled out his own pistol, and both would-be robbers ran back to their car and drove away, police said.
