Three Hispanic males walked in to the store with their masks and pointed guns at the clerk, police said. They told him to get on the floor and then emptied the register and ran out.
The clerk was not hurt, according to police.
Titans will kick-start their CLT20 campaign against the Chennai Super Kings amidst a crowd that would be thronging the stadium to see their local hero MS Dhoni. Not surprisingly, the Dhoni-led side is bound to get all the cheers, but Titan's left handed batsman Jacques Rudolph feels that his team should learn to cope with such situations and enjoy the experience of playing in front of packed crowds.
"The crowd is something we have spoken about. A few guys in our team have not played in front of massive crowds. Sometimes, you can stand and govern your friends at extra cover, you can try and speak to him but you cannot hear him. I think it comes down to awareness point, where the fielder's got to keep watching the captain at all times, make use of hand signals. It is also important not to get swept up by the emotions of a noisy crowd. Just enjoy it. Sometimes people come here and they get nervous, but I think it is a great experience for any cricket player to come out here and we have just got to enjoy it as much as possible."
And when asked about strategies for MS Dhoni who will be playing his first T20 game in front of his home crowd, Rudolph said, "He is in his own town, and he will have a lot of confidence walking out here on Sunday. But as Titans, one of our strengths is that we can focus on our games. We cannot be too worried about other individuals. It is going to be a good, competitive game against CSK."
Competitive it will be and the Titans cannot be taken lightly, especially with the likes of world-class players like AB De Villers and Morne Morkel in the side. "I think we have a very good team, a very well balanced side." Rudolph said. "Unfortunately, we are missing Albie Morkel and Faf du Plessis, but on the other side, we have gained Morne Morkel and AB de Villiers, who have a lot of experience in these conditions. We have trained exceptionally well over the last couple of months, so we've just got to concentrate on our own games and see where it takes us."
It has rained over the last few days and the conditions should suit the Titans fast bowlers, Morne Morkel and Merchant de Lange. "From a conditions point of view, there has been a lot of rain around and the wickets have not been that dry. It seamed a little bit. With the likes of Morne Morkel, who bowls 90-miles plus, and Marchant de Lange, we can strike early against Chennai. This morning, when Morne and the others were bowling, the new ball was going around a bit, which for us, coming to India, it suits us. It is the kind of wicket we play in South Africa. It's the second game (8 pm IST) for us tomorrow, so the first game will give us a good indication to see what the wicket does. We can assess our strategies from maybe just watching the first game."
The Chennai Super Kings have a long batting line up and Rudolph believes that making early inroads in the innings would be crucial. "If we can strike early, we can put them on the back foot. If we get early movement, and we can strike against Chennai early and put them under pressure, we can try and restrict them to a competitive total." Rudolph said.

Specifically, iBeta can now certify biometrics products to the ISO graded performance standards and ANSI/NIST ITL 1-2011 Data format for the interchange of fingerprint, facial and other biometric data.
Graded performance testing will be conducted in accordance with ISO/IEC 19795-5, and this testing is designed to understand and predict the deployed biometric system error rates and transaction times. These particular error rates include the false accept rate, false reject rate, failure to enroll and failure to acquire rates based on a defined test population.
As the biometrics market is flooded with new competition, certification and quality assurance is increasingly important. Standards and certifications vary by industry and use-case, but this is a large focus for the core community - particularly for government and military purchasing in which data exchange is an important consideration.
Reported previously, iBeta recently completed its first task order of conformance testing for mobile biometric devices, under a contract from Sandia National Laboratories for the Department of Homeland Security.
Last year, the U.S DEA approved iBeta's certification process for a biometrics subsystem for electronic prescriptions for controlled substances.

A week after related-adds-wizards-628384">casting a key role on Fox's Gang Related, the midseason drama has recast the part.
Miami Vice alum Saundra Santiago has replaced Wizards of Waverly Place's Maria Canals-Barrera on the Ramon Rodriguez-starrer, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.PHOTOS: Faces of Fall TV 2013
The drama revolves around Ryan ( Charlie's Angels' Rodriguez), a gang member sent in to infiltrate the San Francisco Police Department and rise through its ranks. He must balance obligations to his crime family with an increasing sense of loyalty to his new "family" -- the SFPD's Gang Task Force.
Santiago will recur as Marciela, Javier's ( Cliff Curtis) wife and mother to Carlos ( Reynaldo Gallegos) and Dante ( Jay Hernandez). Though they're not related by blood, she considers Ryan to be a third son.
In addition to Miami Vice, where she played Detective Gina Calabrese for more than 100 episodes, Santiago's credits include Guiding Light, The Sopranos, Damages and One Life to Live. She's repped by DBA.
An exact premiere date for Gang Related has yet to be announced.
DUBLIN - Ryanair, the Dublin-based budget airline, promised on Friday to transform its "abrupt culture" in a bid to win customers, acknowledging for the first time that a reputation for treating its passengers badly might have become a problem.
The Irish airline, this week voted the worst of the 100 biggest brands serving the British market by readers of the consumer magazine Which?, said it would overhaul the way it communicates and be more lenient about fining customers over luggage sizes.
"We should try to eliminate things that unnecessarily" irritate people, Ryanair's chief executive, Michael O'Leary, said at the company's annual meeting after several shareholders complained about the impact of customer service on sales.
He said the airline would overhaul its Web site, set up a new team to respond to e-mail and stop fining customers whose carry-on baggage exceeded maximum sizes by a matter of millimeters.
"A lot of those customer services elements don't cost a lot of money," Mr. O'Leary said. "It's something we are committed to addressing over the coming year."
While Ryanair's focus on cost cutting has helped it to grow - it flew more scheduled international passengers last year than any other airline - shareholders complained that the company's reputation for poor customer service was limiting its room for growth.
"I have seen people crying at boarding gates," Owen O'Reilly, a shareholder, said. "There is simply something wrong there that needs to be addressed."
Mr. O'Leary, who for years has played down complaints about customer service, citing statistics about revenue growth and on-time departures, nodded as other shareholders told anecdotes about being verbally attacked at dinner parties and having family members who refused to fly Ryanair..
"I am very happy to take the blame or responsibility if we have a macho or abrupt culture," he said. "Some of that may well be my own personal character deformities."
He said no significant management changes were planned during the rollout of the new customer service model. He also said he had no intention of stepping down.
Mr. O'Leary said he was personally irritated by the fact that some Ryanair staff fined customers when their carry-on baggage was slightly above the maximum size. He said management would now be encouraging staff to be more lenient.
"If it's a millimeter over size, get on with it," he said. "We are not trying to penalize people for the sake of a millimeter."
A company spokesman later denied recent media reports alleging that staff members can earn bonuses for charging passengers for oversize hand luggage.
Mr. O'Leary also denied that the move to change the airline's culture was a reaction to competitive pressures. But he acknowledged that rivals like easyJet, Ryanair's largest low-cost competitor, were basing their entire public relations strategy around the perception that their customer service was better than that of Ryanair.
A front-page headline in the Irish newspaper The Daily Mail on the morning of the shareholder meeting said, "Ryanair sinks to new low," after a Dublin surgeon was charged 188 euros, or $254, to reschedule a flight days after his entire family was killed in a fire in England.
Mr. O'Leary apologized, said the customer's money would be refunded and promised to deal more quickly with similar cases in the future.
Stephen Furlong, an analyst for the stock brokerage Goodbody, said the changes in customer service were "significant."
"They aren't changing their fundamental business model," he said, but "there is clearly low-hanging fruit because of perceptions in some markets."

When the water level inside Madaline Keeble's car hit her chin, she knew she was running out of time.
The Florida woman was driving in Ponte Vedra Beach when she drove through what looked like a water main break, WTSP reported on Tuesday.
"I saw some water on the road, and I saw the security officer here in his car at the corner," Keeble said. "I made my turn and 20 seconds later I had water in my smart car up to my ears."
She had driven straight into a sinkhole. The car quickly filled up with water, giving Keeble little time to grab her belongings and flee. Moments later, the vehicle was completely submerged.READ MORE: What Causes Sinkholes?
It's unclear what caused this particular hole to start swallowing cars, but the road where it happened is blocked off as a nearby property management company investigations.
Sinkholes are a growing problem.
A sinkhole in Canada suddenly appeared in the middle of a street, causing a backhoe to fall in.
In Louisiana, a sinkhole has become so large that it started swallowing trees whole.

HOUSTON (AP) - Two people in Houston are getting an assist from an AT&T Store where they had their old iPhones stolen while waiting for their new ones.
The men were in line around at 4 a.m. Friday at the west Houston here store, waiting for the new iPhone model, when they were approached by armed men who stood over them and demanded their phones and wallets.
The Houston Chronicle reports that the men told police the robbers appeared to be about 20 years old.
They stayed in line. When the store opened, they got their new iPhones - with credit for the phones that were stolen.
AT&T spokesman Fletcher Cook confirmed the two men received the credit under a program allowing customers to upgrade to new phone models at a discount.(© Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Centre College's campus in Danville was put on lockdown Friday morning as a result of a double homicide here in Danville, spokesman Michael Strysick said in a news release.
Danville law enforcement officials would not comment on news reports of a fatal double shooting and robbery at a pawn shop.
Strysick said police told him there was a double-homicide at a pawn shop a half mile from campus, and the shooter was at large. He said much of Danville was on lockdown.
An email message said that Centre students were asked to go to a secure building and stay where they were with the doors closed.
