Police have charged two people with trying to rob a Salvation Army bell ringer and a convenience store within minutes of each other in Berks County Tuesday.

Police say 58-year-old William Brannen and another man threatened to take the bell ringer's bucket outside of Redner's Quick Shoppe on the 2200 block of Reading Avenue in Spring Township.

When they were unsuccessful, Brannen allegedly walked into the store and demanded money from the cashier, who also refused.

Police were called and Brennan was immediately arrested.

His alleged accomplice was arrested a short time later.
