MCMINNVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

One of FOX 12's Most Wanted flashed a gun at a McMinnville convenience store, but wound up leaving empty-handed.

Surveillance video shows a man dressed head-to-toe in black walk into the Center Street Market at 509 NE Baker St. Thursday night.

At one point, the clerk told officers the suspect lifted his shirt and showed him a revolver tucked into his waistband.

The robber demanded cash from the till, but left with nothing after the clerk explained he couldn't open it unless a purchase was made, police said.

Officers searched the area surrounding the convenience store, but did not find the suspect.

The robber is described as a white man in his 20s, 5'7" or 5'8" tall with a stocky build.

At the time of the attempted robbery, he was wearing a black hoodie sweatshirt, black sweatpants, and possibly a gray and black striped hat.

He also had a scarf covering the lower half of his face.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the McMinnville Police Department.
