Attempted robbery fails when suspect loses nerve

RCMP are looking for a man who came away empty-handed from an attempted robbery Sunday afternoon.

The man walked into the Banners Restaurant on Young Road around 4:45 p.m.. Holding a weapon, he demanded money from the first employee he saw. But when the employee told him that the police were being called, he lost his nerve and ran away.

RCMP estimate the man to be in his 20's, five-foot-six with a slim build. He was wearing baggy jeans and a silver-coloured jacket with fur-lined hood.

Anyone with info is asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers (anonymously) at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
