ELLENSBURG, WASH. (AP) - A Washington state man has pleaded not guilty to robbing a convenience store with his 9-year-old daughter by his side.

Surveillance video of the March 31 holdup near Ellensburg, Wash., showed a girl in a pink coat watching as a robber pulled a gun and took about $200 from the clerk.

Robert Daniel Webb of Everett was arrested April 4 and is being held on $500,000 bail. The 42-year-old Webb entered not-guilty pleas Monday to robbery and reckless endangerment.

On the video, the robber tries to explain himself: “I’m out of work. My daughter’s got to survive.”

The clerk told a TV station that the robber was tearing up and saying his daughter needed medical care.

She’s now with her mother.
