VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Police said just after 5:30 a.m. Sunday, a man with a handgun walked in through an unlocked, sliding glass door and ordered the money and pot from residents in an apartment.

When the residents of the ground-level apartment at 2231 Bridge Creek Ave. produced an empty wallet, the suspect fled empty-handed.

Vancouver police arrived and set up a perimeter to find the suspect with K-9s, but the search was unsuccessful.

The suspect was described as an African-American man in his 20s.  He was wearing a bandana over his face during the attempted robbery.

No one was hurt during the incident.
