LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is searching for a man suspected of an attempted robbery at a fast-food restaurant.

According to a Metro news release, the suspect entered the restaurant around 7:45 p.m. Dec. 5 in the 2300 block of South Maryland Parkway, off of Sahara. The suspect immediately ordered the customers and employees down on the ground. He simulated a handgun with his gloved hand.

The suspect approached the counter and demanded money from the cash register. The employees did not comply with his demands, and the suspect turned his attention toward other customers.

The suspect attempted to rob another customer of her purse, but the customer was able to fight off the suspect. The suspect did not retain any property and exited the business.

He was last seen heading in a westbound direction from the business.

The suspect was described as a black male adult, between 25 to 35 years old, 5-foot-10, bald, black beanie, gray-hooded sweatshirt, white T-shirt, tan pants and dark shoes. He also wore a black glove on his right hand, which he used to simulate a handgun.
