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.

    This shows you how bad the detroit schools are. They could not teach the guy on how to follow through on a plan.
