LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is looking for a man suspected of an attempted armed bank robbery Tuesday morning near Fort Apache and Tropicana.

Metro says that about 11:10 a.m., the suspect approached a teller and presented a note demanding money. The note read in part that he would start shooting.

The teller walked away from the window, and the suspect chose to leave without receiving any money.

The suspect is described as a black male, late 40s to early 50s, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing silver-framed glasses, a blue ball cap, a maroon, long-sleeved button-up shirt, khaki pants and dark shoes.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
