Attempted Robbery

Police are looking for a man who threatened and attempted to rob a woman early Friday morning.

Officer Katie Flood said the 37 year old victim was leaving her apartment at 4501 Tranquility at 3:53 Friday morning when a black male approached her from behind.

Flood said the man had his hand wrapped in a towel or shirt and told the woman he had a gun and demanded her money.
Flood said she only had a dollar and change on her and offered that to the man, but he didn't believe her and made her empty out her purse.

Flood said he didn't find anymore cash and left empty handed. Flood said the man matches the description of the suspect in two Kwik Shop robberies in the area, one where the man wore a beer box on his head.

Police say he is a black male in his late 20s, about 5'10"-6'0" weighing 155 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark shirt and pants and a white bandanna over his nose and mouth, just like the suspect in the Kwik Shop robberies.
