CLIFTON, N.J. -- A gunshot rang out as a woman fought off a pair of robbers Wednesday night in Clifton.

The woman told police she was walking through a small parking lot on Althea Street near the intersection of Van Houten Avenue when she was assaulted by the pair -- one of whom was holding a handgun, Lt. Robert Bracken said.

"Sometime during the encounter, a shot was fired from the handgun," Bracken said. "However, no one was struck."

The robbers then fled empty-handed in a car, he said.
