PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An armed robber walked away empty-handed after he tried to rob Red's Bar & Grill in southeast Portland Wednesday morning.

Police said they responded to an armed robbery at 2:13 a.m.

When officers arrived to the bar, located at 7025 Southeast Foster Road, employees told them the suspect entered the bar armed with a handgun and demanded that everyone inside put their hands up. When the suspect realized there was nobody behind the bar at the time, he ran out of the bar and left empty-handed.

Officers checked the area but did not find anyone matching the suspect's description.

The suspect is described as an unknown race man, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, skinny build, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, a bandana over his face, and blue jeans.
