Amarillo, TX - Amarillo police are looking for a man they say attempted to rob a local store at gunpoint.

APD says a suspect went into the Amarillo Route 66 store on West 6th Avenue Tuesday, approached the clerk and flashed a pistol.

He reportedly demanded cash but the employee told him the register had no money.

When the man realized the register really was empty, he fled.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 20s, last seen wearing a white hoodie and blue jeans.
