Jacksonville police are looking to find a man who attempted to rob a Gate gas station on 103rd Street Monday morning.
About 3 a.m., a man with a plastic bag over his head walked behind the counter and ordered the clerk to "open the register and give me all the money," according to a report from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
The man had a pointed object protruding from his shirt.About that pointed object ...
... the clerk immediately realized it was the man's finger and said, "I'm not giving you anything," according to the report.Time to cut your losses? Not quite.
The would-be robber then turned his attention to a customer.
He told the customer to give up all of his money and, "[t]he customer laughed at the suspect," according to the report.
The suspect was last seen heading northbound on foot from the business at 7023 103rd St.Click here for the source.
