EASTPOINTE, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say they're trying to find a man who apparently changed his mind in the middle of a bank robbery attempt in the Detroit suburb of Eastpointe.
Police tell The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens and The Detroit News that the man went into a TCF Bank shortly before midday Thursday, approached a teller and passed a note demanding money and claiming he had a gun.
When the teller didn't respond, police say the man grabbed the note and fled on foot. No weapon was seen and nothing was taken.
Police have released a photo of the man taken from a bank surveillance system. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Eastpointe police.
