Police are searching for a individual described as a teenager who apparently gave up an attempt to rob a man when then victim explained that he had no money.
Greenbelt police said the assailant, who implied he had a weapon, asked the victim for money on the 7200 block of Mandan Road. The victim told the would-be robber that he didn't have any money, and the suspect walked away, police said.
The incident occurred on Tuesday. The suspect is described as 17 to 18 years old, 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 8, 140 to 155 pounds, and as wearing a black North Face jacket and a black mask.
Anyone with information on the incident may contact the Greenbelt Police Department's Criminal Investigations Unit at (240) 542-2133.
