The 49-year-old Khan chased the prospective robber, however he escaped. Police think the Sunday night tried robbery is associated with numerous other heists in Stoneham and surrounding towns. Khan, who’s been robbed numerous times in the 20 years he’s possessed C-Store, says he just puts his faith in God. He says he’s not a hero, just a “normal guy” trying to run a company.
